= State of California legislation to protect gig workers from 'fake' non-employment contracts

URL = https://www.cooperativeeconomyact.org/

Description

"Over the past decade, companies like Uber and TaskRabbit have eroded hard-won employment protections by misclassifying workers as independent contractors. As a result, their workers operate without basic benefits like health insurance, workers’ compensation, breaks, or paid time off. They are often subjected to unsafe, compromising situations without recourse. In the wake of the landmark AB 5 legislation, labor and worker cooperative advocates drafted the Cooperative Economy Act (CEA) to restructure the relationship between companies, including platform companies, and their workers."
