Castellanos v. California

Docket number

The California Supreme Court will consider whether a law passed by ballot initiative in 2020 that classifies drivers for app-based companies like Uber as independent contractors instead of employees — generally excluding them from workers’ compensation coverage — violates a state constitutional provision vesting the legislature with power to create a workers’ compensation system.
