Proper classification of workers has always been a challenge, but a 2018 ruling by the California Supreme Court dramatically changed the law on whether California employers may legally classify workers as independent contractors. This ruling seems directed toward the gig economy, but the court did not expressly limit it to that sector. Bills are being circulated in the state legislature that would affirm or overturn this decision. Please join a discussion with attorney Vida Thomas about this recent ruling, what it means for artists and arts organizations, and how to respond.
