AB 2257 was adopted last Friday, setting up an easier test for determining when someone a business engages has been hired as an employee, as opposed to engaged as a contractor or subcontractor for purposes of determining if employee benefits must be provided. A number of industries found the text of AB-5, adopted last year that extended employee benefits to the great majority of “contract-employees” too difficult to parse.

I attach for your information the full copy of the bill signed by the Governor.
