Hard-Fought Battle Results in Significant Client Victory in Connecticut Supreme Court
Posted on Tue, Mar 08, 2016
On March 7, 2016, the Connecticut Supreme Court released Standard Oil v. Administrator, Unemployment Compensation – one of the most significant employment law decisions in years.
The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Standard Oil’s challenge to the determination by the Administrator of the Connecticut Unemployment Compensation Act that it misclassified installer and technicians as independent contractors instead of employees. This decision results in a victory not only for Standard Oil, but for other businesses that use independent contractors.
