A preliminary injunction properly issued to require Uber and Lyft to stop misclassifying their drivers as independent contractors.  Under the ABC test adopted in Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court (2018) 4 Cal.5th 903 and AB5 (Lab. Code 2775), one who provides labor or services for pay is presumed to be an employee unless the hiring entity proves all three parts of the ABC test of independent contractor status.  This decision holds that there is no fourth, preliminary step in the analysis to decide if the one paying the worker is the “hiring entity”.  As used in the statute, “hiring entity” means either an employer or one hiring an independent contractor.  Moreover, a worker can offer services simultaneously to more than one person or entity.  Here, Uber and Lyft drivers offer their transportation services to both Uber or Lyft and to the passengers they transport.  Uber and Lyft cannot satisfy the “B” test of showing that the worker performs work that is  outside the usual course of the hiring entity’s business.  Uber and Lyft are not just Internet apps.  They advertise themselves as transportation providers and their businesses depend on the drivers transporting passengers–that is the only way they earn money.
