California Fedex drivers win $14.4 million in pay dispute

October 21, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A court-appointed official has awarded drivers for FedEx Corp. in California about $14.4 million in a dispute over whether the delivery company illegally classified them as independent contractors instead of employees.

The award for job-related expenses and interest is about $9 million more than was awarded to the drivers by a trial court in 2005, lawyers for about 200 drivers said Monday.

FedEx said the company would review the recommendation and contest any disputed items.
