This video podcast episode reminds employers of some of California’s rules for properly classifying workers as independent contractors. First, Harry covers the perils of relying on a choice of law clause to “contract away” California’s employee/independent contractor legal standards, where the underlying facts surrounding the work performed mostly relate to California. Next, he reminds viewers of California’s new misclassification statute in effect in 2012, and its remedies. Finally, Harry covers how employers can structure working arrangements to permissibly establish contractor status, using the recent case of Arnold v. Mutual of Omaha Ins. Co., 202 Cal. App. 4th 580 (2011), as an example. We hope that you will join us for this informative episode.
