    The Square Peg and the Round Hole - W2 Driver or IC? Let the Judge (as the Jury) Finally Decide!

    GrubHub, the food delivery app, has been in a legal battle with a former delivery driver over the driver’s classification as an independent contractor since 2015. Initially filed as a class action in state court in San Francisco, the case was removed to federal court where U.S. Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Corley of the Northern District of California ruled in 2016 that the case would not proceed as a class action. In the most recent news from the case, Judge Corley indicated that the case will proceed to a bench trial on the key issue of whether the driver was properly treated as an independent contractor or whether the driver should have been a W2 employee. Like Lyft and Uber, GrubHub utilizes on demand workers – who are treated as independent contractors – through smartphone apps. So a trial decision in the GrubHub case would certainly have a major impact on these and other gig-economy companies.
