The Connecticut Post has an article up, noting that WWE is under investigation by the state of Connecticut. The investigation is in regards to how the company classifies their workers, which means they are looking at the "independent contractor" classification. WWE spokesman Robert Zimmerman is quoted in the article, saying the following…
"WWE has always complied with the law. Up until this election, WWE has not been fined nor investigated in the past for independent contractor classification. However, curiously the state of Connecticut is currently conducting an audit of WWE's classification of independent contractors. WWE constantly reviews its internal practices and procedures to comply with ever-changing employee laws."
