The operating agreement allows either party to terminate the contract at will and identifies the drivers as independent contractors.

The workers disagree and contend that they are employees under the rules set forth in Peno Trucking, Inc. (93 TCM 1027, T.C. Memo. 2007-66). Would you rule for the IRS or the taxpayer?
