LOS ANGELES (AP) — The California Supreme Court has rejected a challenge to the ballot measure that makes app-based ride-hailing and delivery services drivers independent contractors instead of employees eligible for benefits and job protections.

The court on Wednesday declined to hear the case brought by drivers and unions who had opposed the measure.

Proposition 22 passed in November with 58% support and shielded companies like Uber and Lyft from a new state labor law.

Some drivers sued last month, claiming it was unconstitutional because it limits the power of the Legislature and excludes drivers from being eligible for workers' compensation.
