California AB5 and the Big Impact of the ABC Test: What Motor Carriers Need to Know


On April 30, 2018 the California Supreme Court ruling on a case known as Dynamex set the AB5 precedent. The ruling established a presumption that workers are employees unless the hiring company can prove otherwise – and in January 2020, AB5 was signed into law. 

There is currently an injunction in place protecting drivers and motor carriers in California from adhering to AB5 compliance standards. However, changes in federal administration, and the recent ruling on retro-active application of the ABC Test, are sending a clear signal: the injunction may well be lifted in 2021 – having significant impact on owner operators and the motor carriers currently utilizing an independent contractor model.

  • What are the impacts of AB5 on the trucking industry?
