The California Supreme Court just replaced the old test used to determine when a worker is an independent contractor with a new one. Because the test has three elements, it has been dubbed the ABC test.  Almost two-thirds of the other states use that test, or a version of it, so it is not really a new test.  It should have a huge impact in California.

Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for Big Blend Radio’s SUCCESS EXPRESS business and career show. On this episode, attorney Ward Heinrichs discusses the new California Independent Contractor Test and how it may affect the hospitality and transportation industries. Read Ward's article, on NationalParkTraveling.com.
