Holick v. Cellular Sales of New York, 14-4323

In a putative class action alleging defendants improperly classified plaintiffs as independent contractors and denied them compensation and benefits in violation of federal and New York law, the district court's denial of defendants' motion to compel arbitration is affirmed where: 1) the parties did not intend to arbitrate employment disputes arising during a period preceding an employment agreement; and 2) employment related claims arising before the employment agreement do not fall within the scope of the preceding arbitration agreement because defendants labeled plaintiffs independent contractors.
