As a result of Assembly Bill 5 signed by Governor Newsom on September 19, 2019, effective January 1, 2020, most workers in California will be considered employees, not consultants or Independent Contractors. Community Partners (CP) will work with you to properly classify all workers but reserves the right to decide how all project workers are classified. Please do not make promises to workers about how they will be classified without first consulting with the CP Human Resources team.
