Truck Driver Owner-Operators Misclassified as Independent Contractors

Strauss & Strauss, APC is a leader in the field of representing truck drivers known as “owner-operators.” Many trucking companies in California are illegally classifying their owner-operator truck drivers as independent contractors. These trucking companies are essentially transferring their expenses like fuel, insurance, maintenance, wear and tear, tolls, tires, and more onto their employees, but California law prohibits employers from making their employees pay for business expenses that are part of the performance of their job.

The misclassification of truck driver owner-operators as independent contractors is illegal. Strauss & Strauss, APC has represented many misclassified owner-operators and recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for clients (sometimes hundreds of thousands per each individual).
