Eugene Sherayzen, Esq. Wins a Minnesota Court of Appeals Case

On November 21, 2011, the Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Helpful Hands Transportation, Inc. (HHT) – the client of Sherayzen Law Office – and reversed the unemployment law judge’s (ULJ) determination that HHT’s workers should be classified as employees. Judge Kalitowski wrote the opinion.  Two respondents were listed as “pro se”, but the opinion of the ULJ was defended by Minnesota Attorney General’s Office on behalf of the Department of Employment and Economic Security (DEED). Mr. Eugene Sherayzen represented our client throughout the case.

At the center of the issue was whether the ULJ erred in its determination that HHT’s workers were employees.  Mr. Sherayzen’s chief arguments were: (1) the ULJ’s factual findings are inconsistent with his legal conclusion, and (2) the ULJ failed to follow the analytical framework of Minnesota Rule 3315.0555.   The Court of Appeals agreed with both arguments and reversed the decision.

A copy of the court opinion will be posted on our website later.
