An IC with SCIS in CA was let go today and told there’s no work, no future work foreseen, so they don’t want to carry them on the books. I’ve always heard the more Investigators a company has, full time or IC’s, the more work they get so I don’t know why it would matter if IC’s are on the books or not. Bottom line is no work for IC’s and no foreseen work for IC’s which is translated to full timers as low work and low work foreseen. Has anyone heard of any other IC’s being let go? Full timers are currently working 11/2019 cases which tells the whole story.
Could have something to do with AB5 becoming law in 01/2020?
Most likely this is the case. A lot of lawsuits over the years have been filed against contract companies because of labor laws and the independent. AB5 would make sense while companies cut ties with the ICs in California.
