A cab driver is considered an independent contractor, however, are there any laws that govern what the contractor or employer can and can not do? My question lies more on the dispatching of calls. Is an employer or contractor required to equally (as reasonably as possible) dispatch calls or is picking which drivers make more money than others confining drivers under the employee title.
