Unfortunately, companies today looking to save money, are taking advantage of couriers for their distribution needs, who use independent contractors (IC’s).
Use of independent contractors by courier companies is a no-brainer for companies who are looking to make a quick buck at the expense of the drivers. No workers compensation, no unemployment insurance and you can run the drivers into overtime with no extra money being paid.
California EDD, the US Department of Labor and the IRS might have a different take on this issue.
