California Republicans target IC misclassification laws

Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) reports that California Republicans announced that they were going to fight laws that make it harder to classify a worker as an independent contractor.

Republican lawmakers in California on Jan. 23 announced efforts to fight federal and state legislation that restricts classification of workers as independent contractors.

California state Rep. Kate Sanchez has introduced AB 1928 in the California legislature on Jan. 25 to rescind the “ABC test” to determine independent contractor misclassification introduced by California’s AB 5, which was approved in 2019.

“There are few things more American than starting your own business and working for yourself,” said Sanchez said in a press release. “It’s a big part of the American dream. For too many Californians, that dream was ripped away by AB 5. That’s why I’m introducing legislation to fully repeal AB 5 and help restore the tens of thousands of jobs that law needlessly destroyed.”
