California's Assembly Bill No 5 came into force on January 1 2020, and has had a profound effect on consultants and other independent contractors since then. It broadly affects two classes of B2B:
- 1099-based agreements via its ABC test
- C2C through its rigid 12 point requirements of Corps & LLC's doing business with each other.
Multiple entities have sued California for violation of the FIRST and FOURTEENTH amendments. Can anyone explain how these potential violations pertain to AB5?
