California passes AB5: Uber drivers are employees

Updated: Oct 17, 2020


California Assembly Bill 5 (AB5), popularly known as the “gig worker bill,” was signed into law on September 4, 2019.


AB5 goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2020, and will require companies like Uber that hire independent contractors to reclassify them as employees. The bill expands on a ruling by the California Supreme Court in 2018 in Dynamex Operations West, Inc. vs. Superior Court of Los Angeles.
