Class action complaint filed against FedEx

Class action complaint filed against FedEx

A FedEx driver in Pennsylvania has filed a class action complaint about overtime wages and “misclassification”. Sanel Hodzic alleges that FedEx drivers were intentionally “misclassified” as independent contractors “for the purpose of avoiding fair compensation”.

The case was filed in the Pennsylvania Western District court on 23 July. (The case number is 2:2015cv00956. Click here to access information on the case on the PACER system).

The lawsuit cites previous cases supporting the claim that drivers are employees and subject to Fair Labor Standards Act violations (FLSA) regulations and protections.

The suit claims that drivers regularly work more than 40 hours weekly but that FedEx does not pay them an overtime rate, in “disregard of the FLSA”.

The lawsuit defines the putative class members for the action as “any employees who have worked for the defendant within the past three years”. Hodzic is seeking monetary damages of unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages, interest, attorneys’ fees, and court costs.
