California Court of Appeal Rules Historic Victory for California App-Based Drivers

Today, the Protect App-Based Drivers + Services (PADS) coalition released the following statement following a California Court of Appeal decision in Castellanos v. State of California:

“Today’s ruling is a historic victory for the nearly 1.4 million drivers who rely on the independence and flexibility of app-based work to earn income and for the integrity of California’s initiative system. The Appeals Court upheld the fundamental policy behind the measure – to protect the independent contractor status of app-based drivers in California while providing drivers with new benefits.”
