ATA Position Statement on California Assembly Bill 5

The California State Assembly recently passed a bill that ATA believes will improperly classify the majority of the Association’s members as employees, when in fact they are independent contractors. Without an exemption, this bill would unduly lump together these independent professionals with individual workers who have not made a deliberate choice to provide freelance services.

ATA Calls for an Exemption

In support of our California-based colleagues, ATA has issued a statement requesting that an exemption be made for professional translators and interpreters. Read the full statement on ATA’s website.
