Our recent win in California - securing a travel advisor exemption in Assembly Bill (AB) 5 - was the biggest in ASTA history. But while the final bill exempts our industry from the worst effects of the so-called "ABC Test" when it comes to independent contractors, compliance challenges remain, both on the independent contractor (IC) side and with the state's Seller of Travel Law. To help you make sense, ASTA has put together a members-only California Assembly Bill 5 Compliance Fact Sheet. We'll also be holding a webinar on Tuesday, December 3rd at 3 pm ET to walk through issues related to the engagement of ICs in California in 2020 and beyond and provide agency owners with guidance on satisfying the statutory criteria necessary to claim the "travel agent services" exemption secured through our advocacy efforts.
