As the dust settles on the recently passed new California independent contractor law motor carrier companies and independent drivers are scrambling to make sense of the law and to decide what to do about it.

Carriers, drivers look at ways to deal with California's AB-5

Okay I am no legal expert, but this AB-5 law in my book has little to do with protecting employees and insuring their rights and more about the $8 billion California is losing in taxes. I am still reading up on AB-5 , but considering we are talking about a state with serious financial issues, they are looking for a way to collect every penny they can.

Exactly! It's a big money grab, and not just anti-trucker. It's aimed at all independent contractors. Capitalism is a bad word in California. Maybe the reason so many are fleeing?

Prime drivers have been calling me for a couple hours. CA residents will not be permitted to lease after 1/1/20.

The choices: go company. buy a truck and run own authority. move. quit.

There have been questions surrounding this at our company too. We have a large affiliate in Ca. They are very nervous about this. In our terms an affiliate is a small trucking company leased onto the company. There have been questions if o/o’s leased onto the company that don’t live in Ca can legally haul loads into the state from out of state.

Thank you Ca liberals for messing up things all over the country wtf-2.gif

Yeo, and makes no sense cause supposedly out of state coming in doesnt matter. Cali is gonna screw themselves when freight stops going in or out. they already have so many restrictions drivers dont want to or cant (truck cant) go there.

Exactly!!! But the politicans don’t see it that way I guess. The chatter we are getting is it will extend to O/O’s coming into the state as well. If that turns out to be true Ca will be hurt quickly in a very big way. I think the may have gone too far left and are throwing the baby out with the bath water.
