In January, Justice Catalyst Law, Towards Justice, and Leonard Carder LLP filed suit against Amway, on behalf of a former distributor. Read the complaint here.

The plaintiff alleges that Amway illegally misclassifies its distributors, which it calls “Independent Business Owners,” as independent contractors, instead of as employees entitled protections and benefits under California law. Among other things, the plaintiff contends that Amway failed to pay its employees minimum wage, required them to pay for tools necessary to do their jobs, and failed to maintain required time records. Indeed, it appears that Amway pays most of those workers little to nothing. Worse, many IBOs actually lose money to Amway. IBOs provide vital work central to Amway’s business model. We believe IBOs are entitled to the respect and dignity that all workers deserve.
