Protecting Workers Rights

As we pull through the COVID-19 pandemic, we must take this time to strengthen worker protections.  As City Attorney, I will fight to make sure workers aren’t taken advantage of, misclassified, or denied benefits that they are legally entitled to. 

When workers are hired as independent contractors, they have fewer rights. That corporations and businesses that attempt to classify workers as contractors to save money at the expense of everyday Angelenos is utterly unacceptable.  Protecting workers means holding corporations and businesses accountable.  Workers must be given the correct classifications; we cannot continue to let corporations take advantage of their workers by classifying them as contractors.
