The law makes sure that businesses provide employees their rights. Businesses cannot term employees as independent contractors unless:
- The worker is free from direction and control while performing their job; and
- The work they do is separate from the normal work of the business; and
- They have an independent business.
Businesses must post the required notice about the Act in places of work. The notice must be posted in Spanish if many workers speak Spanish.
Businesses that break the law will be punished.
