TechNet Statement on Dynamex Ballot Initiative in California
Sacramento, CA — TechNet Executive Director for California Courtney Jensen today issued the following statement regarding the announcement by DoorDash, Lyft, and Uber that they will run a ballot initiative in California:
"TechNet welcomes this effort to ensure workers in the on-demand economy can maintain their flexibility and also access benefits in the wake of California Assembly Bill 5 becoming law. Given over 20 industries were exempted from the new law, it is clear a one-size-fits-all policy does not work and new solutions are needed. This ballot initiative is an important step forward. TechNet continues to work with the Governor, the legislature, and industry partners to find a path that benefits all on-demand economy workers in California."
