An Ontario independent contractor is bound by the waiver agreement he signed and can’t sue the companies for whom he worked for damages from an automobile accident that happened while he was working, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice has ruled.

Yehuda Kalash was a truck driver who was an independent owner and operator of his own business. Kalash had contracts with two companies, Carrier One Express and Train Trailer Rentals Limited and had worked under contracts to other companies previously.
