Prop 65

Effective August 30, 2018, significant changes to California's Proposition 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, took effect. To help you understand your responsibilities to comply with it, PHTA developed a Prop 65 Bulletin. We encourage all members who do business in California to download and review it.

California Assembly Bill 5 Addressing Independent Contractors

Assembly Bill 5 was passed by the Legislature on September 9, and signed by Governor Newsom on September 18.

This decision and AB 5 will apply the "ABC" test to the question of employee vs. independent contractor. For more information, email PHTA Director of Government Affairs, Jennifer Hatfield, at
