California public health officials issued an updated policy on gatherings to protect public health and slow the spread of COVID-19. Due to the rapidly evolving situation, SCORE decided to temporarily not hold face-to-face chapter and client gatherings.


We are working to arrange for these meetings to be held as LIVE WEBINARS! We will keep you informed on the details and the registration process as soon as they are available. 


Feel free to reach out to your mentor for Tele-Counseling or SIGN UP HERE to receive 1:1 mentoring!  We appreciate your understanding!


A new California state law rewrites the rules of freelance and gig work, causing confusion for companies and workers who earn their living as independent contractors. Additionally, federal and California law impose a large array of regulations on the employment relationship. Not having some familiarity with these laws can have significant consequences. A basic understanding of some major concepts can greatly reduce the potential exposure to these consequences.

This workshop is meant for business owners whose businesses require employees or independent contractors - and for freelancers and contractors! The presentation will provide answers to the following questions:

(1) What makes someone employee v. independent contractor (including the new changes to the law for 2020 in California)?

(2) What is the wage and hour law and what are some general regulations that employers should be aware of?

(3) What notices must employers post in their workplace to be in compliance with the law?

Registration Fee: only $20
