Hell yeah the city restricted me.

The closure of the tourist corridor (a state order) has caused continued operations unsustainable for me. A very easy feat for an uber driver as everyone knows we net jack shit on a regular day.

Acceptible reasoning issued in the new expanded guidelines this week.

Hopefully you are right. But the state hasn鈥檛 really made it clear how ICs (not just rideshare drivers) apply. Don鈥檛 blow it, or mess up and you get money and then they make you pay it back and get banned from filing ever again. I would wait.

I guess the devil was indeed in the details😃

Maybe Steve Sisolak can bail out the Uber drivers. He doesn't look like he's been missing too many meals lately. His daughters sure as hell won't be fitting in any size 7's anytime soon either.
Its the biggest screw lol.Were you able,available and seeking work?Uber eats doop lol. Rideshare wasnt restricted you can stil go to work sir just turn your app on lol.Dooop..The real guidlines are going to help strippers rather then rideshare drivers.At least their strip clubs closed.Rideshare driveing didnt.

Your interpertation of the law and theirs could be different sir.The State never restricted rideshare drivers.Now if you caught Corona that should be a sure thing lol.Just go and do about 5 Xrides and breathe deeply while your customers are hacking in the back...

Are operations sustainable for drivers here in Las Vegas? No.

Who is talking food delivery? It's my biz, I chose which service I offer and what jobs I take. We are not Arizona. We are forced to get a state biz licence here. That makes me viable for self employed rules and regs.

Bottom line is my work is not sustainable during the emergency state ordered shutdown here in Las Vegas. Open and closed case, sir.

Unemployments view is that "Any income" is more viable then none.Listen I hope you do succeed.I hope everybody does.I just see that their guidlines are going to favor strippers more then rideshare drivers.At least their clubs shut down.Your app hasnt.

Im just relaying what I read about the new Labor guidlines.Im not a lawyer or claims rep. Im sure alot of RS drivers will use their various law degrees to argue and hofally they do prevail lol

I need to go over operating costs for a business and how they can become unsustainable during a pandemic?

It's easy to see and justify that I was forced to SHUT DOWN my business. The wording is right there in the updated guidelines. Read it for yourself.

It's shut down. It's not open every day to see how much business I get. It was forced to shut down for being unsustainable due to the emergency state order.
My income easily proves that.


*Such a dooop!* Def will use this more. Thanks.

I lost a claim 10yrs ago because a employer called me in to work for 2 stupid hours of work after they hadnt called me for 2weeks.I lost in appeal.Unemployments reason for the decision said,"I wasnt technically unemployed by state guidlines and refusal to go to work exempted me from claiming benefits.Ubers app has not shut down.You can still work.Thats there loophole.hofally not but I have a feeling after reading these guidlines today it will be.

Being able to work, and having that work be sustainable are different.

Is the work sustainable? It isn't. My last week was far under the minimum wage.

Governor stopped the work search order. I'm not required to look for work outside my normal operation. I am covered until these state orders are lifted.

I am covered under the direct example used to represent the law, by the people who wrote that law.

while I agree with you, the state clearly doesn't say how to apply as an IC yet. This is something totally new. We might have to wait still until they get things figured out. My guess is they will provide a separate link for ICs to apply. Don't jump the gun yet.

The way you view the law doesnt seem to be the way the dept of labor is interpreting the law or the states from the article I posted.I hope you are correct but I would not count on it.

exactly we have to WAIT for the state

Everyone is so impatient on this. Why rush things when we aren't 100% sure how to proceed with filing as an IC?

Just because someone tries it and "it works" doesn't mean it's ok or you did it the right way. It might come back to bite you in the ass

I did read it. It's not 100% clear step by step. Very general. It's not ready. That's why no full time drivers have gotten anything.

Show me a full time driver who's only source of working income for 2019 was Uber/Lyft who has received anything

It will be crickets

No one has come forward yet claiming that for a reason

Only people who had regular jobs too in 2019 not just doing rideshare the entire year

You people who had a regular job for part of 2019 don't count and aren't really helping give anyone hope

your circumstances are different but thanks anyway

Read the actual expanded guidence instead of preaching from a news article, my dude.

I wonder how many rideshare drivers are loseing their cars and livelyhood right now.How many can wait? Even those with a few bucks saved are starting to check the life raft situation.The violins are still playing and the ship is about to sink. Even the heavy hustlers that drove nights are wondering what the hell.

Im not preaching brother.I just posted it and it kinda looked self explanatory to me.This is America and everybody sees things differently.I respect your view.
