Re: Daffney Lawsuit: TNA Settles
Generally TNA seem to act with a lot of class, but this whole Daffney thing was a stain on their corporate character. Even if she wasn't a contracted employee, the decent, right, thing to do would be to pay up, bearing in mind she was injured working for them.
The whole independent contractor thing is a nightmare though - my second job is worked on the basis of being an independent contractor so even though I work for the same employer year-round and I pretty much do full-time hours for them (hey, I work hard!), they get out of paying me a pension, redundancy, all sorts of benefits. I get a few tax breaks and technically I can decide when and if I do work for them, but in reality if I decide to take 3 months off, they'll just get someone else to do the work then I'd be screwed when I came back, so that's not really a plus.
Glad it's sorted out though - I liked Daffney.
