NDC supports Proposition 22.
• Classifies drivers for app-based transportation (rideshare) and delivery companies as “independent contractors,” not “employees,” unless company: sets drivers’ hours, requires acceptance of specific ride and delivery requests, or restricts working for other companies.
• Independent contractors are not covered by various state employment laws—including minimum wage, overtime, unemployment insurance, and workers’ compensation.
• Instead, independent-contractor drivers would be entitled to other compensation—including minimum earnings, healthcare subsidies, and vehicle insurance.
• Restricts certain local regulation of app-based drivers.
• Criminalizes impersonation of drivers
NDC supports Prop 22 and has been filing amicus briefs before various California courts (Superior Court/ Court of Appeals/ Supreme Court of California), supporting Uber/Lyft’s opposition to the preliminary injunction requiring these companies to immediately reclassify California drivers as employees despite evidence that the vast majority of drivers do not want to be employees.
