Legal ramifications of gig worker bill AB 5
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – More than 70,000 independent truckers are impacted today by a temporary block of AB 5 by a San Diego federal judge.
The U.S. district judge has granted a temporary restraining order sought by the California Trucking Association while he considers a permanent ruling. The judge says the ruling is likely to eventually succeed on the argument that AB 5 violates federal law.
The judge also says truckers are likely to suffer irreparable harm and that the ruling is in the public’s interest.
Legal Analyst Saman Nasseri was in studio to discuss the temporary restraining order and legal ramifications of AB 5.
