Are you aware of the new law that has gone into effect on January 1, 2020?

This new law changes the definition of an independent contractor in California. This may effect your business if you use independent contractors instead of employees.

The California law (Assembly Bill 5) makes it harder for companies to treat workers as independent contractors takes effect next week, forcing small businesses in and outside the state to rethink their staffing.  The law puts tough restrictions on who can be independent contractors or freelancers rather than employees.  Company owners with independent contractors must now decide whether to hire them as employees or look for help in other states.

If you have any questions on how this might affect your business insurance program or your Workers Compensation insurance, please give Ann Pederson a call at 951 600 5751 or email today.

Thank you for the opportunity to protect you, your loved ones and everything you worked so hard for!
