The Fair Labor Standards Act is a United States labor law of 1938 29 U.S.C § 203
Smith Law Firm, LLP (“Smith”) is a law firm with offices in Phoenix and Flagstaff. Smith wanted to provide mediation services as an additional service to its clients. It hired James Moore Mediation Services, with offices in Phoenix, Flagstaff, Tucson, and Yuma, to perform contract mediation services for Smith clients who requested and needed such services. Smith entered into an independent contractor agreement with James Moore Mediation Services. The contract stated that James Moore is an independent contractor and agreed that his business is an independent contractor of Smith.
After entering into the agreement, James worked mostly on jobs assigned by Smith. Smith charged its clients a flat fee, determined by Smith, per mediation then paid James a percentage of that flat fee as a commission. The flat fee was paid to Smith by its clients. James was paid a percentage of the flat fee per mediation on a monthly basis. James was assigned office space at Smith, and used Smith’s equipment, but James bought and used his own supplies. James was in Smith’s office as needed. This arrangement made it easier for clients to utilize James’s services and be familiar with Smith’s offices. Smith scheduled James’s work and clients. Smith also sat in on some of the client mediations and provided feedback to James regarding his work.
