Lear Werts was lead counsel in this collectively certified wage and hour case that was pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri
As is all too often the case in the call center industry, the employees at issue in this case alleged that they were not paid for all the time they were required to perform work on behalf of the employer. Specifically, the employees alleged that they were required to arrive at work before the scheduled start time for their shift. The call center workers alleged that this caused them to perform uncompensated work virtually every day they worked for the defendant.
Lear Werts was able to negotiate a successful classwide settlement on behalf of all of the employees who joined in this case.
