California Voters Approve Prop 22, Allowing Uber & Lyft Drivers to Remain as Independent Contractors

California ride-hailing providers Uber Technologies Inc. and Lyft Inc. will be able to keep their drivers as independent contractors in California as voters overwhelmingly approved Proposition 22, an amendment to the state’s Assembly Bill 5 (AB5) that passed last year. AB5 would otherwise have required that Uber and Lyft, as well as other app-based delivery companies, classify a majority of their drivers working over 40 hours each week on the platform as full-time employees in the state.
