Provides, in GS 97-5.1 (Presumption that taxicab drivers are independent contractors), that the presumption that taxicab drivers are independent contractors is not rebutted solely because a taxicab accepts a trip request to be at a specific place at a specific time, but the presumption can be rebutted by application of the common law test for determining employment status.
