Did Diligent Misclassify Drivers as "Independent Contractors"?
We believe it did—and that drivers are entitled to all of the benefits of being an employee under California law, including overtime, reimbursement of expenses, like mileage costs, vehicle maintenance, and repairs, and many other protections. A new decision by the California Supreme Court sets a high bar for classifying workers as "independent contractors," and we don’t believe that Diligent can meet it. To learn more about the lawsuit we filed challenging Diligent’s misclassification of drivers as "independent contractors," read the complaint.
