There is no doubt California’s Assembly Bill 5 (AB5) impacted the way independent contractors (ICs) and the companies that contract them interact. For many ICs they saw the freedoms and flexibility they enjoyed destroyed Fortuitously, after lobbying from app-based companies, trying to protect their business model, Proposition 22 (Prop 22) has been passed. This legislation enables companies who meet certain criteria to once again operate under the IC model.
Where do you begin? We understand that there is a lot to consider and review by companies wanting to understand how they can re-enable this model of business, and because of that, we have created a guide to go over some of the most pressing questions you might have about Prop 22 and what is required to be compliant as a company operating with ICs.
