From JDSupra, Christopher Engler reports that the Connecticut Supreme Court said that the “place of business” of a company did not extend to homes where technicians worked.  Last year, Daniel Schwartz wrote that the employer had argued that its service technicians, who were independent contractors, provided a service that was “outside the usual course of business of the employer or outside all the employer’s places of business” as required by law.  The state of Connecticut argued that the customers were recruited and billed by the employer and that the place of business extended to the  job site.  See The Real Battle over Independent Contractors and the ABC Test In Connecticut.

With this update, Christopher reports that the Connecticut Supreme Court sided with the employer.
