While Massachusetts’ AG approved ballot initiative to keep drivers ICs, she still spearheads lawsuit against rideshare companies (Boston.com)
September 23, 2021 — Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey remains in a dichotomy after approving a ballot measure that would make gig economy workers independent contractors but still pursuing a lawsuit against rideshare companies to make drivers employees, Boston.com reported.
“We better be able to walk and chew gum at the same time,” Healey said Sept. 21 on GBH’s Boston Public Radio. “Under the state Constitution, there’s a process that allows regular folks to go ahead and get things on a ballot for a vote, and that happens every year … There may be litigation, there may not be litigation, but that’s just the hat that I wear as attorney general.”
