FedEx Ground reached an agreement with plaintiffs in an independent contractor lawsuit to settle for $228 million. The settlement comes after the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that several FedEx Ground workers had been misclassified as independent contractors instead of employees.  A copy of the Court decision can be found here.
