Wage Violation Class Action

We represented nearly one thousand Kansas workers in a class action involving wage violations. Our clients were not properly paid for the time they spent “donning and doffing.” Donning and Donning is used to refer to the practice of putting on “donning” and taking off “doffing” protective clothing, uniforms that are required for the job. Our clients were required to wear hairnets, helmets, khakis, and other protective clothing prior to the start of their shift. However, they were not paid for the time to put on the clothes and to take off the clothes.

 

We filed a lawsuit in the District of Kansas on behalf of all workers in the facility who were improperly paid. Ultimately, the facility changed the way they paid workers and settled for 1,250,000 dollars in unpaid wages.
