California

From JDSupra, Michael Reif reports that a California appeals court affirmed the decision that Uber and Lyft must treat their drivers in California a employees under California’s new independent contractor statute, AB5. Michael writes:

A California appeals court has affirmed a lower court decision requiring Uber and Lyft to “treat their California drivers as employees, providing them with the benefits and wages they are entitled to under state labor law.” The ruling places even greater importance on a “ballot initiative sponsored by gig economy start-ups to exempt themselves from the law” that voters will take up in less than 2 weeks – NYTimes and WSJ and MarketWatch and Marketplace
