Uber Technologies Inc. UBER -0.34% and Lyft LYFT +1.65% Inc. have said they may suspend their ride-hailing operations in California as soon as Friday, escalating a high-stakes battle with their home state over how their drivers should be classified. California sued the companies in May, alleging they were violating a new state law that requires companies to treat workers as employees rather than independent contractors if they are controlled by their employer and contribute to its usual course of business, among other things. As employees, drivers would be eligible for sick days and other benefits, issues that have become more pressing during the coronavirus pandemic.
