Being mis-classified as a contractor instead of an employee has been an issue for many decades and has been discussed ad nauseum on here.   Corporations are always tempted to fire all their employees, eliminate their entire payroll department, and re-"hire" the workers as contractors and let the contractors do the payroll processing for them.   

As far as platform work orders, there are a few rare birds that pop up;  I don't like burning bridges and want to keep my options open.  One of them hasn't given me a reason to leave permanently, but another is seriously testing my patience.

I don't think anybody (in their right mind) would spend a penny if they got kicked off any platform. 

There are so few worthy WOs these days!  Had a worth one the other day (because it sticks in my mind) where they wanted me to travel 2000 (yes, that is two thousand) miles for $45/hr for up to 2 hours.

It all boils down to whether or not you want to spend time and legal-money fighting being kicked off the platform for not playing by the faux-employee rules stated in the work order.

So I guess this clearly means that all service platforms must ensure the wording of any WO must not have any reference to "I work for (buyer name)".

I wonder if this lawsuit will place "platform providers" under the IRS microscope?

Funny...  I started the signup process with them ages ago,  and that came to a screeching halt when I saw what they were paying.  I told 'em flat out that this wasn't anywhere near my rates (which weren't as high then as they are now) and that was the end of that.

I haven't heard a word from them since.

Maybe they lost my info?

if they did consider yourself lucky
