SAHRA Presents The Annual Legal Series!

Session 4

Independent Contractors in California – Do They Still Exist?

Presented by: Freeman Mathis

Tuesday, May 28

Registration/Breakfast 7:45 AM

Presentation 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM

It has been about one year since the Dynamex decision changed how we evaluate the independent contractor versus employee classification process in California. Some say independent contractors are basically a thing of the past in California, but is that true? This presentation will discuss how the issues have further developed in the past year, practical considerations for your business, expected developments in the coming years, and why it all matters.


Melissa Whitehead is a partner in Freeman Mathis & Gary’s Sacramento office. Ms. Whitehead has successfully litigated numerous cases in California's state and federal courts and various administrative agencies, in a wide variety of general liability and employment matters, including wrongful termination, wage and hour, FEHA claims, and EEOC claims. Additionally, she advises and counsels employers concerning their workplace policies, practices, and personnel decisions. Ms. Whitehead regularly assists employers in all aspects of their employment relationship with their employees, including recruiting and hiring; employment agreements and compensation plans; protection of trade secrets; wage and hour laws; independent contractor status; performance standards and disciplinary actions; privacy; leaves of absence and reasonable accommodations; preventing discrimination, harassment and retaliation; preventing and responding to theft and embezzlement; reductions in force, terminations, and layoffs; and compliance with other state and federal employment laws.
