Trial court grants California Attorney General’s request for preliminary injunction forcing Uber and Lyft to reclassify their drivers as employees
August 10, 2020
The decision from the California Superior Court orders Uber and Lyft to reclassify their workers from independent contractors to employees with all the legal requirements that attach to being an employee.
“This is an erroneous decision that allows politicians to tell thousands of individuals that they can’t support themselves and their families in the manner they chose,” said U.S. Chamber Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley. “Unless overturned, the decision threatens to cause significant disruptions for individuals, families, and the economy. It is wrong and should not stand."
