Judge Says 40-Year Newspaper Carrier Is an Employee, Not Contractor

Courthouse News Service 

A newspaper carrier was improperly classified as an independent contractor by the Hearst Communications media company, a federal judge ruled Thursday. Paul Martel has been delivering the San Francisco Chronicle to customers throughout Northern California for nearly 40 years.  It’s a job that typically brings him to warehouse at 1 a.m., where he packages and loads newspaper after newspaper on to his vehicle for delivery. He spends the next four hours on his route, ensuring subscribers of the Chronicle have been supplied with a clean and readable paper, before returning home to monitor an online delivery portal for any redelivery notices, service check updates or complaints.
