Uber or Rasier-NY, LLC?

With nearly 4,000,000 drivers and 22,000 employees, Uber is one of the top ride-share companies in the world. Operating in 63 countries, Uber functions as the starting platform for services offering ride-sharing, meal delivery, and package distribution. While from the outside, Uber gives the impression that it is a single company, under the umbrella of Uber’s name lives a complicated conglomeration of limited liability companies and smaller businesses that are responsible for the legal operations of the company. One of these subsidiary companies is Rasier-NY, LLC, a subsidiary of Uber in charge of contracting individuals to become Uber drivers.

LLC, or limited liability company, refers to one of the possible business platforms a company can choose to operate under. As the name implies, the value of a limited liability company lies in the separation of the owner’s capital from that of the company. In the event of a lawsuit, for example, the accountability resides with the company alone, and, as a result, only the company’s assets can be seized. The assets of the owner or owners of a limited liability company are protected in most instances of litigation.
From a legal standpoint, LLCs are also distinguished by the way they are taxed. Unlike a regular business, LLCs have the option of being taxed as a sole proprietorship, as a partnership, or as an S-corporation. The benefit of not holding the status of an S-corporation is a simpler filing process come tax season. S-corporations can also afford less freedom to a company, as they require a specific leadership structure and rules to be followed. Because the laws across the country are not uniform, the tax regulations for LLCs vary as well. In the case of Uber, in some states, it is more prudent for Uber to establish a limited liability company, as is the case with Rasier-NY, LLC, while in other locations, a different structure might be more financially and legally sound.
Residents of New York State who have cause to bring a lawsuit against Uber should be aware that there are other branches of Rasier, LLC, aside from the New York State-based Rasier-NY, LLC. Determining which entity to bring a lawsuit against is just one of the many ways in which the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. can assist you in your personal injury case.

How does it benefit Uber to have their employees routed through a limited liability company such as Rasier-NY, LLC? For one thing, it separates Uber from the employment of its drivers. This allows for an extra layer of protection against litigation that might be brought against the company. Another benefit is that it allows them to hire drivers as independent contractors rather than employees. Employers are required by state law to pay taxes on their employees’ wages, an obligation that is not necessary for independent contractors. Aside from the legal protections it offers, there are business benefits to operating through LLCs as well. Without the rigidity of a big corporation, it is easier to implement changes that lead to rapid growth.
A lawsuit can still be brought against a limited liability company like Rasier-NY, LLC, as it would be brought against any other entity. Sometimes, knowing what action steps to take in the event of litigation can be confusing, not to mention unneeded stress at a difficult time. At the Dietrich Law Firm P.C., our team of Uber and Rasier-NY, LLC accident attorneys are highly educated and experienced and your best resource when it comes to determining the steps to take in a personal injury claim involving Uber or Rasier-NY, LLC.
