THE STATES

Legislation based on the antiquated ABC test has been introduced in several states: California, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Washington. The AFL-CIO is the driving force behind all the laws, which are being sponsored largely by Democrats.

Fight for Freelancers has allied in these states, and with California (where the legislation already became law as AB5 on January 1, 2020) to try to stop or overturn this disastrous anti-independent contractor legislation.
