California: Uber Drivers Are Employees, Not Contractors

California: Uber Drivers Are Employees, Not Contractors

The California Labor Commission ruled recently that drivers who work for the ride-finder app Uber are technically employees, not independent contractors as the company has claimed. Uber has stated that its app merely connects drivers with passengers, that it is more of a middleman, rather than manager. However, the ruling cited many instances where Uber operated as an employer, such as its policy of giving its drivers phones to use on the job, setting their rates, as well as its policy of disconnecting drivers from the app who have not been active for 180 days.
