Californians’ freedom to choose to work as an independent contractor or freelance is at risk due to an unprecedented Court decision.
Today, Californians choose to work independently for many reasons: flexibility, quality of life, more control over their work, more economic security, extra money on the side, or simply because they enjoy it. However, a court decision places this all at risk.
The court was limited in the information it considered in its decision to potentially limit the ability of Californians to work independently, but the Legislature is not. The Legislature can suspend the decision and adopt a more reflective approach of today’s modern economy that protects workers as well as their freedom to work independently.
We need the State Legislature to protect our freedom to work independently. It is time to modernize our laws to reflect the way Californians are choosing to work today.
