Taxi Cabs - Most Taxi Cab Operators Are Considered Employees


A taxi driver, operator or lessee is an employee if the driver(s), operator(s) or lessee(s) of that employer work 30 or more days in a calendar year, unless such person is leasing a taxi from the owner of the taxi and the owner of the taxi personally, regularly drives the taxi an average of 40 or more hours a week. For the lessee to be considered an independent contractor, the owner-operator may not control, direct, supervise, or have the power to hire or fire such lessee.
