The Battle For Gig Worker Classification Is Heating Up In Massachusetts

The battle for gig worker classification has only just begun, and it shows no signs of slowing down in 2022. A question about gig worker classification is on the finalized Massachusetts ballot for 2022.

GBH News writes, “Those three companies [Uber, Lyft, Doordash] and Instacart are funding the Coalition for Independent Work pushing the Massachusetts ballot question, which would declare all app-based drivers to be independent contractors and not employees — a status that Healey alleges is a violation of existing state law — and offer them access to some new benefits such as a pay floor and paid sick leave.”

Massachusetts’ decision will surely reverberate around the nation and even the world. Read the full story on GBH News.
