FedEx Lawsuit

Ground Business Model Wins Class Action in Washington

FedEx Ground Business Model Wins Class Action in Washington

FedEx Ground delivery drivers today found themselves on the wrong end of the Superior Court of Washington for King County ruling in a class action they brought in 2004. The court ruled that the delivery drivers are not employees but independent contractors, and therefore not entitled to overtime and reimbursement of uniform costs.

The class action involved 320 drivers who alleged the company was wrongly referring to them as entrepreneurs rather than employees.

This is the first case challenging the FedEx Ground business model to be tried by a jury. A similar, national class action is pending in Indiana, involving 30,000 former and current FedEx contractors.
