What

On January 1, a new state employment law (AB 5) went into effect that requires many independent contractors to now be classified as employees—a change that could impact small businesses like yours. 


Join Start Small Think Big and Small Business Majority for our Life Pro Tip Series, in conjunction with SCORE of Silicon Valley, the Oakland African American Chamber of Commerce, United Way Bay Are and Working Solutions for this free webinar in which an attorney will discuss the implications of AB 5 and how it may or may not impact your small business. In this presentation, we'll discuss the difference between independent contractors and employees, as well as “exempt” and “nonexempt” employees under the new wage and hour laws.


Topics of discussion include:

  • AB 5 and the "ABC" test to determine how a worker should be classified
  • How your employees are classified and what it means for your business
  • “Exempt” and “nonexempt” employees under the wage and hour laws
  • Venturize and other free and low-cost resources to revisit your business plan
