Court Designates Sales Managers as “Employees” Because Company Controls Distribution of Sales Leads.

Ogletree Deakins • October 24, 2008

Hopkins v. Cornerstone America, No. 07-10952 (5th Cir. October 13, 2008). The court based its decision on the economic realities of the situation, and determined that the managers were economically dependent upon the company for which they worked, instead of being in business for themselves.
