The gig (economy) is up: New California law upgrades Lyft, Uber, other app serfs to staff


Re: Its about time....

If you were in California, the solution is that all of your 'friends' either need to be partners (as someone suggested, the law firm model or something similar like a coop) or have their own companies that are contracting to you.

At least that's what several lawyers, including one that counsels employees, have advised us.

Then again, IANAL, and you should ask yours about this if it is an issue. That said, if you are in a place where this might become an issue, I would try to get ahead of it....
