Based on the limited information, it would likely cost $750. This would include one telephone call, a letter, and one reasonable revision. Anything beyond that would be charged at the normal hourly rate of $200/hr.
A: Hi there,
In California, workers are presumed to be employees UNLESS a company can prove ALL THREE of the following:
1) Control: Worker is free from the control and direction of the hiring entity in connection with the performance of the work, both under the contract for the performance of the work and in fact;
2) SCOPE: The worker perform work that is outside the usual course of the hiring entity's business; and
3) TRADE: The worker is customarily engaged in an independently established trade, occupation or business of the same nature as that involved in the work performed.
AB5 does list occupations that are exempt from the test above but your occupation isn't one of them.
I would need more information to give you legal advice but based on your question, you will not likely be able to have them as independent contractors.
