January 2020 is the time to act to fix AB5!

AB5 is a California bill that classifies independent contractors as employees. It went into effect on January 1st, 2020, without an exemption for translators and interpreters, and the negative effects are piling up. 

Californian legislators may sponsor a bill to "clean up" AB5. The time is RIGHT NOW to pressure your legislators to make things right for independent contractor language professionals. 

CoPTIC (the Coalition of Practicing Interpreters and Translators of California) has all the information you need to join this effort.


Visit the CoPTIC website, take action today, and share out widely!
