On Sept. 18, 2019, Assembly Bill Number 5 (AB5) became law in California, paving the way for dramatic changes in California’s gig economy. AB5 was designed to provide labor protections for “misclassified independent contractors,” including the application of minimum wage laws, overtime, sick leave requirements, and unemployment and worker’s compensation.
