Talk about a can of worms. NY has a bill that would allow truckers to have only one client and still be considered an independent contractor (among other things). The idea is to protect the independent contractor status of drivers that work for UPS, FedEx, etc. The problem is that if they only have one client and work the equivalent of full time hours for that client, they really are an employee because they are reliant upon that client for their livelihood. Some will disagree with me on that but isn't up for debate is how the US Department of Labor will view these drivers. They have only one client, they aren't promoting their business, they aren't invested in their own business, and on and on. So, NY may be good with their classification but businesses beware, don't piss these workers off or you'll find yourself responsible for overtime, pensions, health insurance, and more because they will be misclassified by US Dept of Labor standards.

Employers often misclassify such workers, and misclassification can result in significant shared-responsibility penalties.

In some cases, they may be existing workers, as where an employer holds on to a pre-existing independent contractor classification.
