FedEx Ground division accused of misclassification of employees

Choosing the right position is a big decision in a person's life. The way in which individuals are classified affects the benefits that they may receive, what expenses they have and the way in which they are paid. Many hard-working people in Texas are realizing that the jobs they are doing may not necessarily be that of independent contractors, as they may have previously thought. This is prompting many people to question whether a company is aware that it may have a misclassification of employees, and some are trying to have the issue corrected.

The plaintiff was working as a welder when he accused his white co-worker, who was also a supervisor, of using derogatory racial slurs.
