Companies that are privately owned are not required by law to disclose detailed financial and operating information in most instances.  They enjoy wide latitude in deciding what types of information to make available to the public.  Small businesses and other enterprises that are privately owned may shield information from public knowledge and determine for themselves who needs to know specific types of information. 

In order to incorporate a business, company formation documents must be filed with the state government.  Unlike a sole proprietorship or general partnership, both of which are formed as soon as the owner or owners conduct business, a corporation or LLC must be created with the state, and each state has its own requirements.

In California, if the corporation is privately owned, you'll need to obtain copies of the corporate charter (or minutes with the most current information) from the insured to verify who the officers and directors are.  Usually, directors are identified in the "articles of incorporation" (or, "corporate charter") and/or "bylaws" of the corporation.  A corporation's articles of incorporation usually set forth shareholder voting rights and procedures.  Other documents that might be helpful in determining ownership are stock certificates, Statement of Information (You must login to view links.

In disputing employment status issues, employers sometimes offer signed waivers or a contract containing a waiver clause, to support their assertion that the worker is independent.

However, You must login to view links.

California Labor Code §5000
provides that any contract or agreement, express or implied, made by any employee to waive California Workers’ Compensation benefits, is null and void.  The statute establishes a rule that an employee who is otherwise eligible for California benefits cannot be deemed to have contractually waived those benefits, and an employer who is otherwise liable for California benefits cannot evade liability through contract.

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.

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.
