Truckers treated unfairly

A plaintiff said that he and other truckers were misclassified as independent contractors and thus treated unfairly.

Plaintiffs and brothers Jose A. and Jose I. Estrada launched a civil suit against Harbor Express Inc., saying that the truckers who were classified as independent contractors did not receive the benefits of being an employee, such as rest breaks, paid overtime, and meal times. However, they were treated like direct employees in many ways. They drove company-owned trucks exclusively for the company, and were not allowed to go drive for other companies while working for Harbor Express Inc.

It’s illegal to deny workers these rights if you are treating them as direct employees of the company.
