June 3, 2015 California Labor Commission ruling
which concludes Uber drivers are employees and not independent contractors.  The commission wrote that Uber is “involved in every aspect of the operation.”

Plaintiff’s car and her labor were her only assets.  Plaintiff’s work did not entail any managerial skills that could affect profit or loss.  Aside from her car, Plaintiff had no investment in the business.  Defendants provided the iPhone application, which was essential to the work.  But for the Defendant’s intellectual property, Plaintiff would not have been able to perform the work.

In light of the above, Plaintiff was Defendant’s employee.  Therefore, the Labor Commissioner has jurisdiction to adjudicate the instant matter.

CONCLUSION

For all the reasons set forth above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Defendants pay Plaintiff the sum of $4,152.20 , calculated as follows:

1.   $3,878.08 in reimbursable expenses pursuant to Labor Code 2802; and
2.   $274.12 in interest pursuant to Labor Code 2802(b).

bizzare story
.

Uber said the decision did not apply to other workers and has appealed it to San Francisco Superior Court.  I seriously doubt they will succeed in arguing for the independent status of their drivers.  If they were smart, they would shut-up and pay the $4,152.20.

Uber has been insured with the same carrier since 2013.  Read the decision You must login to view links.

For some helpful information on the subject of employment status, see the IRS brochure: You must login to view links.

Independent Contractor (Self-Employed) or Employee?


Of course, determinations can have different results for IRS and workers' comp purposes - the IRS may view someone as independent, and you might see them as an employee.  The IRS is concerned with getting tax dollars, we are concerned with claims liability.

An update is long overdue...

My name is Todd Roper.  2015 marks my 30th year in the workers' comp premium audit industry.  Please feel free to connect with me on You must login to view links.

I started AuditBible several years ago thinking there might be a need for such an on-line resource.  You'll see me as Auditor1, Beancounter, and AuditorBob - three member profiles I use.  While it has served its purpose, it is on a much smaller scale than I had hoped for.  For this reason, AuditBible has slowly become my personal on-line file cabinet full of resources I add to from time to time for my reference.  I have no plans to shut it down or charge for membership, etc. so everyone is still welcome to search through and access the resources I have compiled and stored here for use in helping to produce more accurate audits.

Occasionally I have to weed out a few phony members from overseas who post ridiculously lame comments...they don't cause any harm, they're just annoying. 

I'll try keep the ads up-to-date so that if you've found AuditBible to be of some use and you would like to see it continue to exist, you might help out by clicking on some ads that interest you or, even, completing an offer or buying a product/service if it suits your needs (it only helps AuditBible if you click on the ad and complete the transaction then - not if you go directly to the advertiser later without having clicked on the ad here to get there).  Any help would be appreciated since I do incur a monthly expense in running this website Shocked

Suggestions and interactions are encouraged Wink
