The AB5s of Employees and Independent Contractors:
This session addresses the 20 factors the IRS uses to classify workers, with a focus on the severe tax penalties for misclassification.  We will look at how Dynamex and AB5 will impact your organization.  We will also examine the “Gig” worker, review the broader independent contractor workforce, and apply the worker classification on year-end reporting.
