Lessons From Uber: What Every Worker Should Know About Misclassification
Even if your work has nothing to do with driving, the allegations of employee misclassification at Uber could be relevant to you and your rights in the workplace.
Employee misclassification is a widespread issue affecting workers in many different industries throughout California. If you are a misclassified employee, you may be entitled to more money, benefits and important legal protections than you are currently receiving for the work you do.
To help you determine whether you are a misclassified employee and what to do about it if you are, the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C., has released a white paper that covers the following topics:
- What is the difference between an independent contractor and an employee?
- Which workers should be paid an hourly wage rather than an annual salary?
- What are the consequences of employee misclassification?
We’ve prepared a summary of the white paper; see below.
