Castellanos v. State of California et al.

Docket number

Plaintiffs claim that ballot measure classifying app-based drivers as independent contractors infringes on Legislature’s state constitutional authority to create a workers’ compensation system. Plaintiffs argue the measure exempts workers previously classified as employees under state law from workers’ compensation. Intermediate court reversed a trial court’s ruling of unconstitutionality on this claim, and largely upheld the measure. An appeal is pending before the California Supreme Court.
