Amend Protect Communication Access
Background & Latest Update
AB1850 IS NOW AB2257
What is AB2257?
AB2257 is a clean-up bill to add professional exemptions to AB5. We want to add professional exemptions for language interpreters and realtime captioners so communication access for the deaf and hard of hearing community is protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
AB2257 was formerly known as AB1850.
What is AB5?
AB5 was passed in 2019 and severely limits certain independent contractors from providing their services. It decreases the number of sign language interpreters and realtime captioners available.
What is the current status of AB2257?
On June 11, 2020 the California Assembly passed AB2257 but did not honor requests to include professional exemptions for sign language interpreters and realtime captioners
On August 5, 2020, the Senate Labor Committee will vote on AB2257. We need your help to contact members of the Senate Labor Committee to amend AB2257 to include professional exemptions for sign language interpreters and realtime captioners.
