FedEx Corporation Research Reports
On August 27, 2014, FedEx Ground, a subsidiary of FedEx Corporation (FedEx), reported that a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit reversed rulings by the District Court for the Northern District of Indiana in three class action cases that involved mostly FedEx Ground's former independent contractors. The court held that independent contractors working in California from 2000-2007 and Oregon from 1999-2009 were FedEx Ground employees. FedEx Ground stated that the model reviewed by the court is no longer operational, and since 2011, it has only contracted with incorporated businesses, which consider their drivers as their employees. FedEx Ground added that it will seek review of these decisions, along with review by the entire Ninth Circuit. FedEx Ground Senior Vice President and General Counsel said, "We fundamentally disagree with these rulings, which run counter to more than 100 state and federal findings - including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit - upholding our contractual relationships with thousands of independent businesses." The full research reports on FedEx are available to download free of charge at:
