The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals recently reversed the class certification in O’Connor v. Uber , which names Uber drivers as independent contractors rather than employees. The decision was made on the ground that Uber’s arbitration clause prohibits class actions. Drivers are being urged to pursue the misclassifications in individual arbitrations.
