Choo Choo Rides offers individuals the opportunity to develop their own business by utilizing their own
vehicles as a transportation alternative for customers who need a ride. Choo Choo requires drivers to wear a
train hat, install a train whistle on the vehicle, utilize Choo Choo’s proprietary GPS-based customer ordering
system, and make themselves available for rides at least 4 hours per day and 3 days per week. Choo Choo sets
the pricing for all rides through its proprietary software program. The driver receives 80% of the cost of each
ride and 100% of all gratuities. Choo Choo collects 20% of the cost of each ride. Are Choo Choo drivers
employees or independent contractors? Explain. Which of these distinctions is to the advantage of Choo Choo
and which is more advantageous to the drivers? Support your position.

Module 5 DQ 2

WeGotApps, a revolutionary software application development company, is developing rapidly and hiring
hundreds of new employees every month. The CEO places a premium on software programmers, but tends to
ignore administrative functions such as human resources. In fact, the CEO instructs his managers to begin
monitoring all electronic communications and social media posts of WeGotApps employees without alerting
the employees to this fact; he wants to know which employees he can trust and which employees he might
want to release. What issues might the CEO encounter by taking this approach to human resources
management? Can these potential issues be mitigated through a course of action other than creating a human
resources function, or is a human resources function a necessity for the continued development and success
of the business? Explain.
