"Ehh, what's up, doc?"

Using AuditBible's News Alerts page (to the right of the Home tab, above) I located these two stories on the ongoing saga of FedEx claiming that the people they have driving their FedEx trucks to deliver your Christmas packages are really not their employees.  The way the chips are beginning to fall, it looks like sombody's going to be on Santa's bad list this year.

It was nothing really...I just clicked on the "Independent Contractor" search term just now, and there they were.  Momma always said, "Life is like a box of chocolates."

Since the results on the News Alerts page can cycle through pretty quickly sometimes, I thought I'd post direct links to those two stories in case you missed them:

    Contractors disputing employee status, benefits

Stories like this can be instructive for us when faced with a situation where we are trying to determine the status of an independent contractor.  They can also serve as a warning for other employers who may be misclassifying their employees.

Here's a follow-up to Bob's post...according to an article in the Kansas City Business Journal:
Quote
Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster joined seven other attorneys general to crack down on FedEx Ground for allegedly circumventing worker protections as a way to dodge payroll taxes.
