New Economic Analysis: 900,000 App-Based Drivers Would Lose Work in California if Forced to be Classified as Employees

May 18, 2020

A new report released today by the Berkeley Research Group found that forcing app-based delivery and rideshare drivers to become employees would result in eliminating 900,000 jobs, reducing the number of drivers needed in California by 80 to 90 percent.

The analysis was conducted by Dr. William Hamm, former state legislative analyst, and Dr. David Lewin, professor of management, human resources and organizational behavior at the UCLA Anderson School of Management. The authors’ analysis is based on internal data from companies accounting for the majority of the on-demand sector.
