One thought on “AB5”

  1. The article has a tweet in it about avoiding paying people minimum wage by misclassifying them as contractors. This is really common and it isn’t just about an hourly wage but paying payroll taxes and all the other fun stuff that comes along with having an employee. The companies that abuse this system are more likely to be small and struggling.

    What is to be done about this? What is the best way to find people who abuse the system?

    The IRS already looks for this type of abuse. Getting busted doesn’t work out well for the employer or the employee. Accountants already look for irregularities that may get their clients in trouble with the IRS. So, there is already a regulatory system in place that specifically targets those who abuse it and has enforcement with serious penalties.
