I started a post on this in P&C, but this recent decision will certainly have an impact on all Captives.

Hot off the press:

Following a unanimous advisory jury verdict in April, U.S. District Court Judge Donald Nugent issued a decision last Tuesday, August 1st, stating that American Family Insurance had misclassified agents as independent contractors instead of employees. In addition, the Court denied American Family’s request that the class be decertified.

Full press release can be found here:

This will be a costly decision, and interesting to see the depth of payment.

I'm expecting at least one year of free car washes. !

So glad the judge agreed but i thought this went straight to appeals? Progress nonetheless.
