Legislation of Interest to the Industry


Keep an eye on AB 5 –  The bill, introduced by CA State Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez, is written to address the misclassification of workers and to provide basic protections like unemployment insurance or workers’ compensation, especially for those working in the ‘gig’  economy.

Of importance to the Real Estate Broker:

The bill also makes clear that a number of professions are not covered under the Dynamex  case or AB 5 if certain factors are met – this will allow real estate licensees to retain their status as independent contractors.
