Hello. I'm' from California and I just retired for now. I am applying to get back into the mystery shopping field. I do have a question but I am not sure if this is where to post.
Anywho...I live in Cali as I have noted and I know that come this January, independent contractors have to be considered employees. How is that going to affect the mystery shopping companies and how is it going to affect us, contractors? I know there are loopholes but I have not read up on them. Does anyone know the answer?
One thing that might happen, mystery shopping companies may change the reports. No more micro managing the shops.
Employers micromanage all the time. Being asked to greet every customer with a smile, eye contact and a specific phrase is practically the definition of micro managing.
A law saying all workers are employees will not impact micromanaging.
