Serving the Greater Philadelphia Area and Beyond
Our firm, working with various co-counsel, represented delivery drivers who worked for FedEx Ground Package System, Inc (“FedEx”) in Ohio and New York. In both cases, the drivers allege that FedEx violated state wage laws by treating the drivers as independent contractors rather than employees. Both lawsuits seek, among other things, the reimbursement of various types of deductions, charges, and out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the drivers. The lawsuits contend that, if the drivers were treated as employees, these deductions, charges, and out-of-pocket expenses would have been illegal. As discussed below, the Ohio case settled as a class action for a total payment of $8.35 million. Meanwhile, the New York case is going forward in the United States District Court in Rochester, NY. FedEx has denied that it violated and New York wage laws. You can learn more about these matters below.
This lawsuit is pending, and the company has denied liability. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the lawsuit. We would be happy to answer your questions and provide you with additional information.
