  • w2 Contract 6 month mark California

    I was recently told that in Ca there are requirements that a company is to provide to any hourly w2 contractor who is continuing working beyond their 6 month mark regardless of the written contract. For instance I was told the contracting firm must provide health insurance if it is not being provided or included in the contract. Is this true? Are there other requirements that are triggered at the 6 month mark?

    There is no general law in California (or in any other state except Hawaii) that requires an employer to provide health insurance regardless of how long the employee has worked.

    There are no rights or benefits I can think of that an employee automatically becomes legally entitled to at the six month mark.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
