What Is California Assembly Bill 5 (AB5)?

California Assembly Bill 5 (AB5), popularly known as the “gig worker bill,” is a piece of legislation signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom in September 2019. Scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2020, it will require companies that hire independent contractors to reclassify them as employees, with a few exceptions. The bill expands on a ruling made in a case that reached the California Supreme Court in 2018, Dynamex Operations West, Inc. vs. Superior Court of Los Angeles.

Something new to-do:
Go check out the new wine bar, THE 1894 at Vromans bookstore in Pasadena:

We can’t thank Ale von Sydow -Design Principal- and her team at McAnulty+von Sydow Architecture enough for our beautiful new wine bar, The 1894. Ale’s creative vision and tireless work ethic are extraordinary. She is someone who never sees problems, only possibilities. She worked vigilantly to come up with solutions that fit our budget and helped us make important choices about where our money would be best spent to improve our overall project. Ale spoke “contractor” fluently and was invaluable in overseeing the project and navigating the permitting and inspection processes. The proof of her design skills is obvious in our final project—the bar is beautiful! Ale’s attention to detail can be seen in all the special little touches where she elevated the ordinary to the extraordinary From the beginning it was obvious that Ale was committed to being our partner and creating something together that we could all be proud of. She was an absolute joy to work with—patient beyond belief, with a great sense of humor—and we look forward to our next project with her!
