Federal Court Issues Important Independent Contractor Decision
A federal district court recently held that Oil field gate attendants in Texas were independent contractors and not employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Gate Guard Services LP v. Solis, ____F.2d___( S.D. Tex., No. 10-00091, 2/13/13). I bring this case to your attention because the court does a nice job of analyzing this important issue.
