Employee Misclassification Lawyers
Assisting Misclassified Employees and Independent Contractors Receive Unpaid Wages & Benefits
Companies often tell truck drivers and delivery drivers that they can be their own bosses and own their routes, but this is false. The company exercises control, and there are several factors under New York state law and federal law that dictate who is and who is not an employee. New York recently enacted a system called the ABC test for motor carriers and transportation delivery workers, and this test comprises several regulations that determine employee status. There is a presumption that if a worker is hired as an independent contractor for one of these companies, the worker is inherently an employee. However, this is not true.
