Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian Says Uber Drivers Are Employees. (Does that mean he has to shave the beard?)
Oregon labor officials will begin classifying Uber drivers as employees instead of contractors, according to an advisory opinion released Wednesday.
The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries issued the advisory. It states that Uber drives will no longer be considered contractors. The very business model Uber is based on, however, relies on contracting. The transportation network company (TNC) opposes the opinion.
