California Gig Worker Proposal 22 Was Unconstitutional by High Court
In a late-night Friday blow to Uber, Lyft, and other gig-worker-centric companies, judges in higher courts were passed in 2020 to dismiss the state’s controversial AB-5 law on gig employment. Workers have ruled California Proposal 22 designed, which violates the State Constitution. Frank Leche, a senior court judge in Alameda County, including most of Oakland, Berkeley and East Bay, ruled that the law limits “future legislative power” to define the employment status of gig workers. The proceeding was filed by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) in January after a similar proceeding was dismissed by the California Supreme Court and referred to a lower court.
