We had the privilege of speaking with the Littler Workplace Policy Institute in August, 2019, about California Assembly Bill 5 (AB5). AB5 pertains to the codification of the Dynamex decision into law. As AB5 will directly impact Mortgage Field Services in the State of California specifically, and potentially nationwide, they have granted us permission to publish their Report. It was authored by Bruce Sarchet, Michael Lotito, William Hays Weissman, Patrick Stokes, Sophia Behnia, Stephen Melnick, Jacqueline Kalk, Tammy McCutchen, Alex MacDonald, Michael Pedhirney, and Jim Paretti.

The International Association of Field Service Technicians (IAFST) recognizes that we represent both Labor and Management. With that said, our official position is that for those whom are classified as employees, the IAFST will endeavor to represent with collective bargaining in accordance with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). We also seek to bring accord, with respect to AB5, within our Industry.
