TransForce Helps Motor Carriers Navigate AB5

AB5, based on the California Dynamex decision, changes the employment landscape for independent contractors.

On Wednesday, September 18, 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed Bill AB5 into law. Under AB5, 2 million independent contractors, including truck drivers, may need to be reclassified as employees. The law will go into effect January 1, 2020.
