Denial of Summary Judgment in Another Independent Contractor Case

The cases in which workers allege that companies misclassify them as independent contractors continue to mount up. On January 31, 2011, a California appellate court held that a trucking company could not get summary judgment against a truck driver who alleged that he had been misclassified as an independent contractor. The case is entitled Arzate v. Bridge Terminal Transport, Inc., and it can be found at 192 Cal. App. 4th 419. Our office, like many Montgomery County, Philadelphia-area, and Pittsburgh-area wage and overtime lawyers and attorneys, represents delivery drivers who have been denied overtime and other wage rights because the boss misclassified them as independent contractors.
