Another former contractor brought this case to my attention. This is another "is he an employee or an independent contractor?" matter. This one however has gone all the way to the top. The case evolves around the question of whether Mr. Oleivera is a contractor or employee as it pertains to the Federal Arbitration Act of 1925. If the court comes down on the side of Olivera what impact it could have on the FXG model would not be immediately known leaving contractors to decide if they want to hang around and see what happens or try to get out under terms that may not be as favorable later on.
