While the issue isn’t moving along quite as quickly in New York as it is in California, the state isn’t exactly standing still.

Lawmakers like state Sen. Diane Savino have said they don’t think something like AB5 is an appropriate approach for New York, but Savino held a hearing earlier this month on securing benefits for gig workers. Aside from labor groups and unions, there hasn’t been much appetite from the state Legislature to adopt a law as stringent as AB5 – which, after all, is based on a 2018 California Supreme Court decision – although that could change as California works out the details of how the law will work.
