Gig-Work Bill Passes Senate Committee

I'll never understand why someone takes a freelance / independent contractor / gig-work only to complain or strike over it being that kind of job.

The bill, which passed the Assembly 53-11 in May, codifies and expands a 2018 California Supreme Court decision known as Dynamex. The ruling makes it harder for companies to claim workers are independent contractors, saying that workers are employees if companies control their activities, if they do work central to the company’s business, and if the workers do not have independent enterprises doing that work.
