Capitol Weekly Podcast: KabaTalks and the coronavirus

Brian Kabateck, Kabateck Brown Kellner

Brothers  John and Brian Kabateck join us for another special KabaTalks episode of the Capitol Weekly Podcast. As usual, the brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a contentious issue – namely employer rights vs. workers’ rights in the age of coronavirus. John, a voice for small business, maintains that AB5 should be suspended in the face of a worldwide calamity that is swamping small businesses; Brian, an L.A.-based litigator, makes the case that the pandemic reveals the dangers to misclassified independent contract workers who suddenly find themselves with no income, no healthcare and no access to unemployment.

Also on deck: how an insurance loophole is screwing businesses forced to close during the pandemic. All that and much more on today’s episode of the Capitol Weekly Podcast.
