Indiana Sides with Carrier in Driver Classification Case
The Indiana Supreme Court has upheld a lower court ruling against a driver seeking unemployment benefits using the state’s ABC test to determine the worker’s employment status.
According to the State’s ABC test, a business can classify a worker as an Independent Contractor if:
- If they are free from direct control or direction.
- They perform services outside the Company’s usual course of business.
- The worker receives a commission or operates an independently established occupation.
