Ab Law Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

California Assembly Bill 5 or AB 5 is a state statute that expands a landmark Supreme Court of California case, Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court ("Dynamex"). In that case, the court held that most workers are employees, ought to be classified as such, and the burden of proof for classifying individuals as independent contractors belongs to the hiring entity.

Rebecca Lawson for Mavs Moneyball mentioned how California’s terrible AB5 came for her today, and she's devastated,"As with many of my colleagues today, because I live in California, I was just told that I can no longer hold a paid position with SB Nation. This means that I will be forced to step down as Editor-in-Chief of Mavs Moneyball as of March 31.

For those who don’t know, California’s legislature recently passed a law, Assembly Bill 5, codifying a California Supreme Court decision that classifies many independent contractors as employees. While there is a small carve-out in the statute that allows for paid writers or editors to continue to produce a very limited amount of content per company, it’s not nearly enough, and it would be hard for me or most of my colleagues to fit in that small box.

So, SB Nation has chosen to do the easiest thing they can to comply with California law -- not work with California-based independent contractors, or any contractors elsewhere writing for California-based teams. I don’t blame them at all."
