Assembly Bill (AB) 5 from 2019 by Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez changed the classification of independent contractors to be considered employees. Essentially, making all workers considered employees unless proven otherwise. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is holding a panel to understand the impacts to minorities in the state. The LA Chamber will be a panelist on the panel and is holding a focus group to have a better understanding of how AB 5 impacted small business, specifically women and minority owned businesses.
