APPEALS COURT AGREES: UBER AND LYFT MUST FOLLOW THE LAW

Sacramento, CA -- A California appeals court has now joined the San Francisco Superior Court, the Attorney General of the State of California and city attorneys in San Francisco, San Diego and Los Angeles in demanding that Uber and Lyft follow existing California law and treat rideshare drivers as employees, paying legal wages and benefits including unemployment insurance, sick pay and workers’ compensation.  

“No matter how many times Uber and Lyft break the law, Attorney General Xavier Becerra and city attorneys have had rideshare drivers’ backs as we demanded what the law clearly guarantees us: sick pay, unemployment insurance, and workers’ compensation,” said Jerome Gage, rideshare driver from Los Angeles. “Uber and Lyft are spending $185 million to convince voters to pass Proposition 22 so they can keep exploiting drivers like me. Voters, please don’t let these multi-billion dollar app companies off the hook - they can afford to provide the pay and benefits drivers deserve. Vote NO on Prop 22.”
