I heard a disturbing news. A court ruling in California know informally as Dynamex, may tighten the laws around independent contractors, the problem for freelancers: someone is an independent contractor only if they perform work “outside the usual course of the hiring entity’s business.” Has anyone else heard of this?

Here is a journal article about it.
