CALIFORNIA SUPREME COURT ADOPTS NEW TEST
The California Supreme Court adopted a new test this spring to determine if a business’s workers are “employees” or “independent contractors” under California wage orders. Wage orders govern minimum wages, maximum hours, and meal and rest breaks for millions of California employees. The upshot of the decision in Dynamex Operations West v. Superior Court is it will be substantially harder for businesses to classify workers as independent contractors.
