Uber may insist that its drivers are contractors and not employees, but New Jersey isn’t buying that argument. The state’s labor department has slapped Uber and its Rasier subsidiary with a nearly $650 million bill for overdue unemployment and disability insurance taxes from the past four years, arguing that the ridesharing firm misclassified drivers. About $523 million of that is actual taxes, while up to $119 million is due in interest and penalties. Labor Commissioner Robert Asaro-Angelo said this was an example of the administration “cracking down on employee misclassification” and that there was “no reason” on-demand workers couldn’t be treated like other flexible staff.
