Fee Based "Work From Home" Schemes May Be Illegal

Many companies now use workers, working from their homes, to accomplish tasks on a "fee basis" meaning that the worker is paid by the task, not by the hour.  While there is a "homeworker" exception to the wage and hour laws, many of the schemes devised by employers to classify fee based home workers as independent contractors may be illegal.  Strauss Law PLLC has been a leader in getting fair pay for work from home and fee based workers.  If you think you have been the victim of a work from home/fee based illegal scheme, we want to hear from you.  Contact Strauss Law to learn more.
