Summary

  • Florida has a statutory test for determining independent contractor status under the state's workers' compensation law. See Workers' Compensation.
  • Florida courts consider 10 common law factors when determining whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor under the Florida Reemployment Assistance Program Law. See Unemployment Insurance.
  • A driver for a Transportation Network Company (TNC) (a ride-sharing company like Uber or Lyft that uses a digital network to connect customers with drivers who provide prearranged rides) will be considered an independent contractor and not an employee as long as certain conditions are met. See Transportation Network Companies.
