We are asking our elected leaders to FIX AB 5 for all of us.
We are freelancers, independent contractors, impacted businesses, non-profits, and organizations across California that are impacted by AB 5 that went into effect on January 1, 2020 and the 2018 California State Supreme Court decision known as Dynamex.
Protect Our Livelihoods…Stop Our Economic Distress
We are experiencing economic distress and uncertainty. Businesses are cancelling contracts…there is confusion as to whether we can continue our profession as a sole proprietor …we are all losing work.
