Shephard, Finkelman, Miller and Shah have announced they are involved in Investigations against Asset Management Services, Five Brothers Mortgage, Safeguard Properties, CoreLogic and Aim Your Way, LLC.
It would appear that more and more law firms are taking up the question as to whether or not alleged Independent Contractors were in fact Contractors or whether they were employees all along.
It would appear that the overall questions predominately hinge upon the amount of control that these and other National, Regional and Otherwise Unspecified Order Mills had over individuals. Additionally, when these Companies cut people from their rolls, the allegations are that under multiple state’s law the people were to have been paid in 72 – 96 hours.
With all of the recent babbling by Safeguard Properties and others about people being required to pay for their own background checks and perform 10 page Inspections or risk $250 back billing, I find it to be a good time to begin these Inquiries.
