A last minute amendment to Assembly Bill 5, a controversial state bill which would codify a State Supreme Court ruling reclassifying rideshare drivers and other gig economy 1099 workers as W2 employees, would empower City Attorneys, like SF’s Dennis Herrera, to sue for enforcement. The bill passed both state chambers, and awaits Governor Newsom’s signature.
