If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. This mantra holds true for California Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher. In February 2017, Gonzalez Fletcher introduced Assembly Bill 1099 – appropriately named for the IRS Form 1099 that independent contractors and gig workers receive each year. AB 1099 has recently passed the State Assembly, and is now pending before the Senate Labor and Industrial Relations Committee. Specifically, AB 1099 would require companies that accept credit card payments to allow patrons to leave gratuities by credit card as well.
