Anxious to preserve their access to freelance work, Uber, Lyft and other on-demand companies are pushing for a bargain with some labor groups to stave off a California bill that could force them to treat workers in the state as employees.  https://lat.ms/31P8cIB 

Assembly Bill 5 would give additional legal force to a 2018 state Supreme Court ruling, which created a test for companies seeking to classify their workers as independent contractors.  https://lat.ms/31P8cIB 

As workers agitate for basic labor protections across the U.S., the passing of the bill in California could set a precedent for regulating gig work. Companies have been meeting with some labor groups to discuss potential alternatives.  https://lat.ms/31P8cIB
