On September 18th, 2019 AB 5 was approved by Governor Newson and Chaptered by Secretary of State – Chapter 296, Statutes of 2019.

Thank you for all your help and support for this bill.

About the Bill: Existing law, as established in the case of Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court of Los Angeles (2018) 4 Cal.5th 903 (Dynamex), creates a presumption that a worker who performs services for a hirer is an employee. Existing law requires a 3-part test, commonly known as the “ABC” test, to establish that a worker is independent contractor.

This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to include provisions within this bill would codify the decision in the Dynamex case and clarify its application.
