Newspaper Carriers Are Employees, Court Rules

Newspaper carriers for the San Diego - Union-Tribune (UT) have finally received a favorable ruling from a case that started way back in 2009. While the carriers initially raised a number of claims, including one that claimed the paper failed to pay minimum wage and overtime, most claims were dropped in 2013 except for the claim that the newspaper failed to reimburse workers for reasonable business expenses.
