Steve Viscelli's Research on Worker Misclassification Supported Workers’ Oral Arguments in New Prime v. Oliveira Before the Supreme Court of the United States

Steve Viscelli’s research on worker misclassification supported workers’ oral arguments in New Prime v. Oliveira before the Supreme Court of the United States recently. The case will decide whether independent contractors in interstate transportation have the ability to take employers to court over employment abuses or must submit to individual arbitration. Viscelli has argued that hundreds of thousands of such workers have been misclassified and denied minimum wage. Questioning by conservative Justices Roberts and Gorsuch was unexpectedly favorable to the workers' arguments. Read more about the case and arguments here.
