Your Theatre and AB5: What You Need to Know

August 19, 2024 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (PDT)


AB5 changed the legal landscape for the gig economy. 

In this one-hour presentation, you will learn how this law came to be, what it requires, and how it affects the theater community. Shireen Wetmore and Eisha Perry, employment attorneys with the law firm Duane Morris will discuss AB5’s impact and key questions to consider in determining how to classify theater workers. 

This presentation will not have a Q&A. If you're looking for legal advice, California Lawyers for the Arts can connect you with a lawyer. To learn more about employment requirements, check out our upcoming HR Crash Course on July 22.
