What does AB5 mean for the trucking industry?
Assembly Bill 5 or AB5 makes it harder for companies to label workers as independent contractors. This new law does not just apply to Uber and Lyft drivers or office workers brought on as independent contractors. This new law also drastically impacts the way the trucking industry in California operates. Working with a driver staffing company, such as Centerline Drivers, will eliminate the risk of misclassifying your drivers. By partnering with us, Centerline will take on the cost and burden of employing these drivers directly.
