They are an essential element in the transport sector to support cyclical demand. In order to preserve the owner-operator classification and avoid classification challenges, the carrier should endeavour to document and maintain corporate records that clearly define the owner operator as an independent entity next to the carrier that owns and operates equipment and employs drivers. The carrier should also give the owner operator the opportunity to make independent judgments and business decisions. In addition, the carrier should, to the extent possible, refrain from exercising requirements or controls over the owner operator that go beyond the customer`s requirements or federal regulations. Admittedly, the existence of an owner-operator agreement and payment under Form 1099 does not automatically guarantee owner-operator status. The carrier should distinguish and clearly establish the classification of the owner operator with the owner operator and within the carrier and personnel. This requires documentation that distinguishes this classification, as well as the right terminology and behavior that addresses the owner operator as a separate business. This in turn requires the application of all contractual conditions, with a clearly defined contract renewal procedure, the provision of incentives and penalties, the provision of multiple routes and the possibility for the owner operator to refuse contracts. Finally, in the event of termination of an owner operator, the carrier should always dismiss the operator and not the equipment.

Criminal liability claims generally involve highly contentious differences of opinion. In Anderson v. PPCT Management Systems, Inc., 145 p.3d 503 (Alaska 2006), a company was held liable for the negligence of its independent contractor if it “exercised a certain degree of control over how the work is performed.” For the rights to remuneration and hourly, the Tribunal conducted the “control test” in Bobich v. Stewart, 843 p.2d 1232 (Alaska 1992) and Perri v. Certified Languages Intern., LLC, 187 Or.App. 176, 66 pp.3d 53 (Or.App 2003).
