Uber drivers are contractors, not employees, US labour agency says
Updated : May 15, 2019 07:59 AM IST
The recommendation by the office of general counsel Peter Robb, who was appointed to the National Labour Relations Board by President Donald Trump, was made in a memo dated April 16 and released on Tuesday.
The memo will not affect scores of lawsuits claiming Uber drivers should be treated as employees under federal and state wage laws.
Employees are significantly more costly because they are entitled to the minimum wage, overtime pay and reimbursements for work-related expenses under those laws.
