The End of Independent Contractors? What California Employers Need to Know About AB 5

On September 18, 2019, Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law Assembly Bill (AB) 5, codifying last year’s Supreme Court of California decision that established a new three-factor test, known as the ABC test, to determine whether a worker is an independent contractor or an employee. In addition to codifying the ABC test, the new law contains carve outs for several industries and occupations, including professional services, doctors, lawyers, real estate, insurance, and referral agencies that will be subject to the multifactor Borello test (or similar tests) if they meet certain conditions. Join Robert Roginson and Zander Chemers as they discuss the key provisions of the new law, including the law’s origins, whom it will impact, and which employers might fall within one of its exceptions.

New Protections, New Requirements, New Challenges: What Employers Need to Know About Changes to New York State’s Antidiscrimination Laws

During the 2019 legislative session, the New York State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo approved a sweeping set of measures that will substantially change New York State’s employment laws. This legislation, once it becomes fully effective, will overhaul New York State’s antidiscrimination laws and uproot precedent that employers have long relied upon to defend harassment claims. Join this webinar for a discussion of the changes, including several that will go into effect on October 11, 2019. Topics will include new requirements for sexual harassment prevention training, changes in the standards applicable to harassment claims, new limitations on the use of nondisclosure agreements in settlements related to alleged discrimination claims, and the implications for multistate employers.
