Gig Economy Driver Rights
Drivers in California are challenging employers:
Drivers are claiming the employers led them to believe that they would be truly independent workers – not subject to the direction and control of the company.
Drivers are required to follow all the rules and are treated virtually in every respect as employees – except they don’t get any of the benefits like overtime, sick days, health insurance, and reimbursement for expenses.
We will stand up for the rights of drivers who were wrongfully misclassified as independent contractors and help you receive the compensation you deserve.

You’re Not The Only One
We have helped drivers before, and, at no cost, can help you determine if you have a claim for reimbursements of business expenses (such as insurance, gas, and maintenance costs of your vehicle), improper wage deductions, and damages as a result of misrepresentation and unfair business practices.
Why do employers misclassify workers as “independent contractors”?
Independent contractor misclassification is wide-spread and it’s illegal. Employers will frequently misclassify workers as “independent contractors” to avoid paying certain expenses, including insurance and worker compensation coverage, and certain employer taxes. Drivers allege that the employer requires them to pay for their own expenses. But at all times, the employer had absolute control over the fares and fees charged and could terminate a driver without notice.
We’ve helped rideshare drivers hold their employers accountable in court.
At Zimmerman Reed, we have helped rideshare drivers before. We represented hundreds of Uber drivers in individual arbitrations alleging the same misclassification violations. Drivers will have to bring their claims through individual arbitration as well.
