California pool company contests EDD findings; Fight continues on independent contractor status
Recently CPSA became aware of an Employment Development Department enforcement action against a pool company that also provided monthly consumer pool service. This company had 20-plus independent contractors that it used to provide monthly pool service. The EDD determined that these contractors were employees and that the pool company owed the state employment taxes, the cost of unemployment insurance and disability insurance benefits, the cost of providing workers' compensation coverage and all investigation costs. The pool company contested the findings of EDD and an administrative dispute ensued.
