WWE Investigated For Classifying Wrestlers as Contractors

Nick Paglino

CTPost.com is reporting that WWE is currently being investigated by Connecticut state officials over its classification of wrestlers as independent contractors. WWE Spokesperson Robert Zimmerman had the following to say in response to the investigation: "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."
