Uber could stop allowing drivers in California to set fares and view customers’ destinations, according to a recent report.
The ride-hailing app started testing those policies in January 2020 as a way to sidestep California’s gig worker law, AB5, which requires companies to treat gig workers like employees.
By allowing drivers to set fares and see customers’ destinations before picking them up, Uber said it was giving drivers more flexibility and control, FOX Business reported at the time.
However, more than a year later, the company is reportedly admitting that those policies have been bad for business and have made the app unreliable, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday.
