By Cal-Valley News

Thank you for partnering with our team this year. We appreciate you entrusting the best interests of your friends and family with us. It’s hard to believe that the end of 2019 is fast approaching and that not just a new year, but a new decade is on the horizon. Our success this year was from your support and we look forward to continuing to provide the best service possible for you for the rest of this year, next year and beyond. Looking back, we were happy to remain heavily involved in the community through local charities, blood drives and multiple community events. We look forward to growing our community involvement in 2020. Again, we hope you enjoy the holiday season with friends and family, and have a happy new year.

California Assembly Bill 5 (AB5)

By Specialty Insurance

California Assembly Bill 5 (AB5) was signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsome on September 18, 2019, and its impact could potentially alter the long-standing tradition of hiring owner-operators. AB5 specifically expands the Supreme Courts ABC Test in Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v Superior Court of Los Angeles. The ABC Test is required to determine whether a worker is an employee or independent contractor. A worker is classified as an employee unless the trucking company/employer can establish all three of the following:

A. That the worker is free from the hiring entity’s control and direction in connection with performance of the work, both under the contract for the performance of the work and in actually, performing the work;

B. That the worker performs work that is outside the usual course of the hiring entity’s business; and

C. That the worker is customarily engaged in an independently established trade, occupation, or business of the same nature as the work performed.

Within the industry, letter B tends to be the main disruptor, trying to prove the hiring of an owner-operator is outside of the hiring entities usual course of business. There are tons of questions that need answers. We are here to help you transition through the process and discuss possible solutions.
