In a previous note, The Crypto Legal reported that Uber and Lyft were sued by the California Labor Commissioner for alleged wage theft. The Commissioner's Office noted that the basis of the lawsuit is that the companies are wrongly classifying their workers as independent contractors rather than employees.
Following this line, TechCrunch reported that a judge from the California Court of Appeals has agreed with Uber and Lyft after the preliminary injunction that had ordered the companies to classify their drivers as employees. The court is reviewing the companies' appeal to overturn the decision. The oral report of the case is set for the middle of next October.
An Uber spokesperson noted: We are happy that the appeals court recognized the questions that are really important to the case, and that access to these services cannot be cut off so abruptly because it goes against drivers' ability to work. your way with freedom.
