Why am I ineligible if I live in California?

On January 1, 2020, California's Assembly Bill 5 went into effect. This is a state statute that places a burden of proof on the hiring entity to classify a worker as an independent contractor.

We have always classified our Educators as independent contractors, and doing otherwise would place an undue financial burden on us. Accordingly, as long as this law remains in effect, we cannot accept applications or contributions from Educators in California.
