We welcome back Tom Sheehy of the Sheehy Strategy Group for an in-depth discussion of AB 5 and this year’s legislative changes to the law. The discussion starts with background: the 2018 CA Supreme Court’s Dynamex decision and Assemblymember Gonzalez’s introduction of AB 5. Then they discuss the changes and carve-outs that happened in the fall of 2019, including an intriguing part where a senator pulled their own bill, which doesn’t often happen. Tom explains why AB 5 was necessary for the protection of workers, where it went too far, what has been done, and what work there is left to do and why. You’ll come out of this episode with a clear understanding of the issues both past and present, and how the legislative process works
