At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Truck and delivery drivers working as independent contractors.
What's Going On?
Some drivers are complaining that the companies they work for have misclassified them as "independent contractors" when they're actually employees. As a result, these drivers say they're getting cheated out of overtime and minimum wage pay, as well as protection against discrimination.
What's Being Done About This?
Hundreds of lawsuits have been filed accusing companies of misclassifying their workers as independent contractors. Even big names like Macy's and FedEx have been sued – and ended up paying out millions to their drivers.
How Do I Know If I'm an Employee or Independent Contractor?
If you're economically dependent on the company you work for, you're most likely an employee. If you're in business for yourself, you're most likely an independent contractor. Unfortunately, it's not always that easy to distinguish.
