Amazon Prime new courier service challenges in court as drivers claim they are employees

Amazon Prime’s new courrier service claims its drivers are contractors, however a number of them are claiming they are employees and challenging Amazon in court. The drivers argue that every task they perform is under the control of Amazon, and that Amazon is achieving speed and affordability only by cheating workers of their rights. This suit represents the latest development in the battleground of the employee versus contractor debate which has raged over the last few years in the United States.
