    FedEx Doesn’t Owe Contract Drivers Overtime Pay, Jury Says - Bloomberg

    FedEx Corp. didn’t illegally deny overtime pay to contract delivery drivers who accused the company of wrongly calling them entrepreneurs while treating them as employees, a Seattle jury decided.

    FedEx, based in Memphis, Tennessee, still faces a national class-action lawsuit over driver pay and lost a similar case in California last year. Yesterday’s decision in Washington state court has no bearing on the federal case in South Bend, Indiana.
