Driver Misclassification Suit Filed Against Port Companies By Los Angeles

The City of Los Angeles filed lawsuits against three port trucking companies, alleging that each avoided paying drivers proper wages and benefits by intentionally misclassifying hundreds of truckers as independent contractors.
