Read book description and reviews bellow
We have for review Roberts v. Gator Freightways, Inc., 538 So.2d 55 (Fla. 1st DCA 1989). This is a workers compensation case in which the district court held that Gator Freightways was the statutory employer of an employee of its independent contractor, who did not carry workers compensation coverage. We find conflict with Williams v. Pan American World Airways, Inc., 448 So.2d 68 (Fla. 3d DCA 1984), and Florida Power and Light Co. v. Brown, 274 So.2d 558 (Fla. 3d DCA 1973). We have jurisdiction, article V, ? 3(b)(3), Florida Constitution, and approve the district court decision in the instant case.
