Kim Kavin and I went live, unplanned today, because of the weeks events in New Jersey regarding “Golf Caddie” carve outs from what could be another attempt to end Independent Contractor status in NJ. We touch on the ProAct a little, but primarily this piece is based around what happened in the last 3 days in New Jersey.

Here are some links related to our conversation:……

ABC Test

The ABC test defines if a worker is an employee or independent contractor in California.

Note: The ABC test must be used for the purpose of the Unemployment Insurance Code beginning January 1, 2020.

A worker is considered an employee and not an independent contractor, unless the hiring entity meets all three conditions of the ABC test:

A) The person is independent of the hiring organization in connection with the performance of the work, both under the contract for the performance of the work and in fact.

B) The person performs work that is outside the hiring entity’s business.

C) The person is routinely doing work in an independently established trade, occupation, or business that is the same as the work being requested and performed.

Note: Workers are considered employees unless proven otherwise. The hiring organization must show that workers meet all conditions of the ABC test in order to classify them as independent contractors, unless there is a statutory exclusion or determination of employment. AB 5 and AB 2257 do not change how out-of-state workers are classified.

Proposition 22 makes app-based drivers for network companies independent contractors and not employees or agents if the network company meets certain conditions.
