We have recently filed a new case against FedEx with our colleagues at Lichten & Liss-Riordan, P.C., and Barkan, Meizlish, Handelman, Goodin, DeRose & Wentz, LLP. Check out the website for the lawsuit here.
As stated on the lawsuit’s website, in the past two years, courts around the country have ruled that FedEx has classified its drivers as independent contractors. However, there has not yet been a case that challenges the failure of FedEx to pay overtime (time and a half pay for hours worked beyond 40 per week) to its small truck drivers. Federal law has an overtime exemption for many truck drivers, but this exemption has an important exception for drivers of trucks under 10,000 pounds. If you have driven one of these smaller trucks for FedEx, this case could provide you with significant compensation. Contact our office at (215)866-1551 for a free consultation.
