Homejoy Shuts Doors To On-Demand Home Services

Homejoy, one of the many, on-demand startups serving the Los Angeles area, said today that it will be shutting down its services, and will be closing on July 31st. The company--which initially launched into Los Angeles in 2013--apparently had issues raising its next round of funding, and also had been battling a number of worker classification lawsuits over whether or not its workers should be employees. Pathjoy had launched its first expansion outside the Bay Area in January of 2013, when it started its services in Los Angeles, and has been founded by Aaron Cheung and Adora Cheung.
