      I have a client who I have discussed the AB 5 issue with – specifically telling the company to see an employment attorney for classification purposes.  I believe there are 2 employees that are an issue but don’t want to specifically advise for insurance reasons.

      However, the company says they will “take their chances.”  If I recommend an attorney and they don’t follow the advice, am I personally subject to penalties ?

      We can’t get any information from the DIR or the EDD but information that we received from a source high up in the labor department told us that if you told someone they individual is an employee, they don’t follow your advice and prepare returns you could be held liable for the penalty.
