WWE investigated; misclassification of employees

The Connecticut Post is reporting that a spokesman for World Wrestling Entertainment has confirmed that the company is being investigated, “by state officials for classifying its wrestlers and other, behind-the-scenes production talent as independent contractors.” This comes after weeks of media scrutiny in relation to Linda McMahon’s current campaign for U.S. Senate in Connecticut.

WWE spokesman Robert Zimmerman added, “WWE has always complied with the law. Up until this election, WWE has not been fined nor investigated in the past for independent contractor classification. However, curiously the state of Connecticut is currently conducting an audit of WWE’s classification of independent contractors. WWE constantly reviews its internal practices and procedures to comply with ever-changing employee laws.”
