Uber and Postmates Denied Injunctive Relief Against AB 5

| Feb 19, 2020 | EDD |

Uber and Postmates hit another AB 5 roadblock this month when a California district court refused to enjoin enforcement of AB 5, finding that AB 5 is rationally related to the state’s valid interest in preventing misclassification of works, that the plaintiffs could continue in their chosen profession even with employment status changes, and that the contractual relationships between the plaintiffs and their drivers would not be substantially impaired.  Additionally, the court found that irreparable injury to the plaintiffs was speculative.  Last, the court said that the state’s interest in applying AB 5 to hundreds of thousands of workers in California outweighed the plaintiffs’ fear of being made to abide by the law.
