Uber Runs into a Big Speed Bump in Florida



Uber Appeal Focuses on Question: Are Drivers Contractors or Not?





Celia Ampel, Daily Business Review

Uber has a tough road ahead as it appeals Florida's recent decision that a former driver was an employee, not an independent contractor, employment law experts said.

"They vigorously fight these cases and, in my opinion, are trying very hard to keep their business model in place," said employment lawyer Jamie Dokovna, a shareholder of Becker & Poliakoff in West Palm Beach. "Whether or not they get to continue with it may not be their choice."Uber considers its drivers to be partners running independent businesses. But the state took a different position earlier this month, when the Department of Economic Opportunity notified a former Uber driver that he could seek unemployment benefits because he was an employee.

The key issue: Could the San Francisco-based ride-sharing company exercise enough control over its drivers to be considered their employer?
