Independent Contractor or Employee? What It Means for CA Micro-Businesses

Christopher Lodgson of Sac Black Biz, a CAMEO member,  wrote us wondering if we were doing any work around the Dynamex case. He wrote:  “Some of the black-owned beauty/barber professionals in our network reached out with concerns and confusion over the effect of a fairly recent California Supreme Court decision called Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court.”

Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court of Los Angeles was brought by two delivery drivers against same-day delivery company Dynamex. In 2004, Dynamex started classifying delivery drivers as independent contractors rather than employees. In the suit, the plaintiffs contested that Dynamex was misclassifying their drivers, therefore violating the provisions of IWC wage order No. 9, the applicable state wage order governing the transportation industry.
