VIP Tours of Orlando Inc., v. State of Florida Department of Labor and Employment Security
This case discusses whether a tour guide (Hoogland) is an employee or an independent contractor for the purposes of unemployment compensation.
The Dept. of Labor found that because the tour guides: 1) worked under the name of the tour agency, 2) used vehicles provided by the agency, 3) had to follow agency instructions - that they were employees for the purposes of benefits.
-The tour guide was paid on a per job basis
-The tour guide could accept or reject any job
-Could accept jobs from other tour ...
This solution discusses the difference between an employee and an independent contractor for purposes of unemployment compensation.
