As we are beginning to see now, more and more Class Action Suits are spinning up against Members of the National Association of Mortgage Field Services (NAMFS) for the Independent Contractor vs Employee Status. Not surprising when you have Safeguard Properties (SGP) demanding Contractors perform and pay for their own Background Checks.
While we are on Safeguard Properties, their Legal Department attempted to implicate us today in an Incident occurring over a year ago on a Property we could never find. When confronted with litigation, they backed down. That story tomorrow!
