Yes, the PRO Act uses the exact same language, word-for-word, found in California’s AB 5’s law.
The PRO Act would amend the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and use the ABC test to define employment under that law, which governs the relationship between employers, employees, and labor unions.
Unlike AB-5, which only applies to California, the PRO Act would apply the ABC test to all 50 states for the first time ever.
It also is likely that if the ABC test is established under one federal law, it will spread into other areas.
That alone is a dramatic change, and it would be the first time the federal government has adopted this restrictive ABC test.
