Effective August 6, 2016, Arizona law will allow employing entities and independent contractors to take advantage of a rebuttal presumption that an independent contractor relationship exists if certain conditions are met. House Bill 211, more commonly known as Declaration of Independent Business Status (DIBS), amends Title 23 of the Arizona Revised Statues by adding Chapter 10 relating to employment relationships, which includes two new statutes: A.R.S. § 23-1601 and A.R.S. § 23-1602.
