For now – Uber and Lyft Drivers have not been contacted by the rideshare companies.
Contrary to some of the rhetoric we’ve heard, AB5 does not automatically reclassify any rideshare drivers from independent contractors to employees. AB5 does not provide drivers with benefits, nor does it give drivers the right to organize. In fact, the bill currently says nothing about rideshare drivers.
We will be in touch when we hear anything that affects our rideshare driving.
Thanks for keeping in touch
