Court Rules in Uber and Lyft Drivers’ and Cal-OSHA’s Favor

FJWW is proud to join the Asian Law Caucus and Rideshare Drivers United in representing Uber and Lyft drivers in proceedings regarding safety citations issued to the two rideshare companies by Cal-OSHA during the COVID-19 pandemic. Uber and Lyft appealed the Cal-OSHA citations in 2022 and those appeals are pending before the California Occupational Safety & Health Appeals Board. Last year, both companies filed declaratory judgment actions in the Orange County Superior Court seeking to cut short the still-pending administrative proceedings and obtain a broad ruling that Cal-OSHA has no jurisdiction over Uber or Lyft. On Monday, April 22, the Court sustained demurrers filed by the drivers and Cal-OSHA in the declaratory judgment actions.
