This website provides information about a proposed settlement concerning all individuals who were a FedEx Ground or FedEx Home Delivery Pickup and Delivery Driver in the State of Rhode Island and had an Operating Agreement at any time between May 19, 1999 and October 15, 2007. 

The people who brought the suit, the 'Plaintiffs', are nine contractors who operated FedEx Ground or FedEx Home Delivery routes. The Plaintiffs sued FedEx Ground Package System, Inc. (the 'Defendant'). The Plaintiffs brought the lawsuit on behalf of themselves and a class of other pickup and delivery drivers who, like them, signed contracts with FedEx Ground to operate FedEx Ground or Home Delivery routes in the State of Rhode Island.

This lawsuit is about whether FedEx Ground misclassified pickup and delivery drivers as independent contractors rather than as employees, and failed to provide them with legal rights that employees have under Rhode Island law. In the operative Complaint, Plaintiffs seek to recover classwide compensation for, among other things, illegal wage deductions and unreimbursed employment expenses. FedEx Ground maintains that the independent contractor classification is appropriate and denies that it has broken any laws.
