Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
I would consider a contract between you and the drivers setting out that they are independent contractors and not employees and other terms you want to set out.Overall it is a good idea.You might want to include a noncompete to keep them from working for the competition.
You really should have local lawyer prepare this to give you max protection and avoid any complaints that they are employees here rather than a contractor.
You also want the contract to state that it is governed by the laws of your state and that any disputes are to be resolved in your county and state.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
