Susan K. Lessack, a partner with Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the December 6, 2018 Law360 article, "Calif. Bill Floated to Undo Dynamex Worker Classification Test."
Susan Lessack, a partner at Pepper Hamilton LLP who specializes in employment issues, told Law360 that reverting to the Borello standard would make it easier for lawyers to help clients set up independent contractor relationships.
“Under the Borello test, there’s a lot more flexibility to design what contractors can do and how much control they have over their work, et cetera,” Lessack said. “So as lawyers we can be very helpful in strengthening the relationship with independent contractors to minimize the risk that they’d be viewed as misclassified."
