    Hi,

    My question is regarding the passage of AB5 and how this will affect actors. Does it seem like studios and production companies will now be forced to classify actors as employees?

     

    Thank you.

    Actors are already treated as employees unless they are working through a loan out corporation. AB 5 applies to labor law, not tax law. We will have to see what happens and whether the EDD will adopt it, which they did in Borello but so far have said Dynmex doesn’t apply for payroll taxes and worker compensation
