Agents ? You ARE a member of the American Family Insurance Company...

"CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A jury in Cleveland decided this week that thousands of American Family Insurance agents across the country should be classified as employees, not independent contractors.

The decision, issued Tuesday, gives a class of current and former agents of American Family Insurance the next step they need as they seek to obtain as they seek federally-protected retirement benefits from the insurance giant.

The company could be required to pay for more than $1 billion in retirement benefits if the judge rules in favor of the agents, an attorney representing the class said.

Appalling that a company that wants consumers to be members of 'its family' treated their agents so poorly.

It will barely affect the bottom line for American Family.
