Any rule enacted which allows a company to misclassify a worker as an "independent


contractor" particularly those workers hired from a website (e.g.. Uber) is patently wrong and an
injustice to the worker; such a rule would be successfully challenged in court, I would think. If
such a rule currently exists, it should be immediately rescinded.
