Help protect worker health in California.
California is on the brink of passing AB5, a bill that would advance economic security and health of gig workers across California — but we need your help to get past the finish line and pass AB5! AB5 has passed the Assembly, and is awaiting a vote in the Senate.
AB5 would codify a new test for determining whether a worker is an independent contractor or employee and make possible the reclassification of an expanded set of independent contractor workers as employees.
This means Lyft and Uber drivers (along with many others working in the gig economy) would be eligible for unemployment insurance, healthcare subsidies, paid parental leave, overtime pay, workers’ compensation, and a minimum hourly wage.
