The Fair Employment and Housing Act in California prohibits harassment and discrimination against people providing services pursuant to a contract, often referred to as independent contractors. The Dolan Law Firm was one of the first law firms to bring legal action to protect the rights of independent contractors under this law, which changed in the year 2000. The Dolan Law Firm has the highest recorded verdict, $61,000,056, ever received on behalf of a harassed contractor in the case of Issa/Rizkallah vs. FedEx Ground.
