FedEx loses appeal in drivers' case

In Brief | LABOR

August 14, 2007|From Times Wire Services

FedEx Corp. lost its appeal of a $5.3-million verdict that would make hundreds of independent contractor drivers full-time employees.

A California appeals court rejected the company's claim that a trial court judge erred in deciding the FedEx Ground workers should be accorded full-time status. More than 200 drivers had sued FedEx in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claiming that it treated contractors like full-time employees while denying them full pay and benefits.
