Good Morning Anaheim Breakfast

Mar 06, 2020
Anaheim Chamber of Commerce

Jason spoke at the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce about the hot topic of AB 5. Since its passage by the Legislature and enactment by Governor Newsom last year, AB 5 has been the topic of much debate and discussion about its potential to impact not only independent contractors throughout California but also the businesses that hire them, as well as other workers. Since coming into law on January 1, many workers in California have seen their work opportunities disappear or drastically cut back. Already, the law has been challenged in whole or part in court by a number of lawsuits. In addition, both ballot measures and legislation has been introduced to mitigate its harm by either repealing many of its provisions or granting more exemptions than were included in AB 5 originally.
