In Berwick v. Uber Technologies, the California Labor Commission issued a ruling June 3 classifying an Uber driver as an employee, not an independent contractor.
Similarly, the Florida Department of Revenue recently ruled that Uber drivers are employees rather than independent contractors. In the Florida case, one of its drivers claimed that Uber created an employer-employee relationship and barred him from using the Uber app after a dispute regarding an accident. Uber denied the existence of an employer-employee relationship, claiming its drivers are independent contractors.
