Tell California Lawmakers: Protect Our Freedom to Work Independently!

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.

I am asking you to help protect my freedom to choose the way I make a living.

A recent California Supreme Court decision could create severe economic instability for me and the millions of Californians who rely and choose independent work over being an employee.

With new innovations, working independently has become more accessible and a better way to make a living for many people like me. I value a work-life balance and control over my schedule. In fact, I make more now than when I was an employee.

We can’t let one court decision from a decade-old case take us backwards forcing many of us into a serious economic hardship.

We are asking you to take action to suspend the court decision and embrace the modern workforce needs. California has an opportunity to lead to find a better way to protect workers and our choices. We need protections that reflect today’s reality.
