The California Supreme Court just declined to take up the petition filed by a group of app-based rideshare and delivery drivers to hold as unconstitutional the voter-approved ballot measure that ensured that app-based rideshare and delivery drivers could be classified as independent contractors rather than employees. On February 3, the California Supreme Court denied the petition filed by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and a group of rideshare drivers seeking to strike down Proposition 22. The SEIU and the group of drivers argued the ballot measure was unconstitutional by putting illegal constraints on the ability of state lawmakers to empower drivers to organize, in violation of the California Constitution. About a month after the petition was filed, the state Supreme Court rejected their challenge in a short docket entry and without much explanation.
