Have you been misclassified as an independent contractor?
On March 17, 2017, Attorney Adam J. Shafran and Rudolph Friedmann LLP filed a class action lawsuit against Smart Transportation, Inc. and related companies (“Smart”) to recover damages on behalf of a class of drivers who alleged they were misclassified as independent contractors by Smart.
Smart is a non-emergency medical transportation company that drives individuals to and from doctor’s appointments, to and from clinical facilities, and to and from other related non-emergency medical appointments. Smart engages individuals who perform the driving services on behalf of Smart that Smart purports to classify as independent contractors. As a result of the alleged independent contractor misclassification, Plaintiff and the putative class seek to recover unpaid overtime wages, unlawful deductions taken from their wages, unreimbursed transportation expenses, and benefits to which they would have been entitled had they been properly classified as employees. For more information, please review a copy of the class action complaint below.
Independent contractor misclassification in the non-emergency medical transportation field is rampant. If you perform non-emergency medical transportation services and believe you have been misclassified as an independent contractor or are not receiving overtime compensation, contact Attorney Shafran at any time to learn more about your rights.
