New Jersey is the latest state to say Uber's drivers should be classified as employees rather than independent contractors. The state's Department of Labor and Workforce Development said because of this misclassification, the ride-hailing company owes it roughly $650 million in unemployment taxes and disability insurance, according to Bloomberg Law.

    Another clear example was in broward county florida were state officials had asked both uber and lyft to do a real criminal backround check for all their drivers.. both uber and lyft declined and did not turn on their services in that county.. instead they sent in their p.r. people to wine and dine and offer $$$$$$ Broward county soon changes their laws for that requirement that protected the citizens
