Your recent ruling that someone hired from a website will be classified as an independent
contractor, and depriving them of employee protections and benefits is wrong. Not only does it
allow companies to shirk their responsibilities to their workers, but this is a decision for the
legislature, not an appointed commission. This rule should be scrapped and the matter addressed
through proper legislation.
