However, in the case of Uber, the company has made a number of missteps over the past few years that serve as lessons to other employers.

Misclassification of Employees by Employers in Florida

The misclassification of employees as independent contractors only leads to confusion, potential abuse, and possible delays in benefits.

Misclassification is often the result of a mistake that, while annoying at the time, can be fixed rather easily. However, misclassification has been used to defraud workers and state government. The U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division is now cracking down on misclassification. It's crucial that both employers and workers know who qualifies as what.
