    I don't think it will have much effect on online gig workers.

    But the court said the company, to justify contractor status, must prove, first, that the worker is free, in everyday tasks, from the company's "control and direction"; second, that the work is "outside the usual course of the hiring entity's business"; and third, that the worker is regularly engaged in an independent occupation or business of the same type he or she is performing for the company.
