Court changes landscape of employee classification

A recent opinion by the California Supreme Court applied what media outlets were described as a new legal test that employers will have to use when determining whether their workers are truly employees or independent contractors. Under this new test, which only applies when it comes to wage and hour violations, an employer who wants to classify a worker as an independent contractor has to establish that its worker is, legally and in practice, free to determine how to do his or her work. The employer can only be concerned with the end result.
