FedEx lawsuits challenging the misclassification of delivery drivers as independent contractors

We have filed a number of lawsuits against FedEx Ground and Home Delivery for misclassifying its drivers as independent contractors. We have won a number of cases in Massachusetts declaring workers to be employees though they were classified as independent contractors.

In Massachusetts, we won a ruling that FedEx has misclassified its drivers.  The case is now pending at the Supreme Judicial Court for a ruling on the issue of what damages drivers can recover for that violation. 

We have also represented drivers who worked in other states, including Connecticut, Vermont, Montana, and Maine.
