BOSTON, MA, August 30, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Working Solutions Law Firm, a team of employment attorneys working on severance, FMLA, and unpaid wages issues in New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts at https://www.workingsolutionsnyc.com/, is announcing new litigation concerning the misclassification of employees in the Bay State. The case is No. 1:23-cv-11639-IT and can be found at the US District Court District of Massachusetts at https://www.mad.uscourts.gov/.
“While this case spotlights the struggles of workers in Massachusetts, its essence underscores the vital importance of ensuring every worker is correctly classified and fully protected under both federal and Massachusetts law,” explained Chris Q. Davis, managing partners at the law firm. “We stand firm in our pursuit to uphold workers’ rights, ensuring that no employee is deprived of the rights, privileges, and protections they rightfully deserve.”
Here is background on the case. This is a collective and class action lawsuit filed by representative Plaintiffs against Amrock LLC on behalf of themselves and others similarly employed. The plaintiffs and others in the suit were employed as residential appraisers and related positions in the U.S., specifically Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Despite being non-exempt employees as per federal and state wage laws, the Complaint alleges that they weren’t classified as such, leading to a failure in receiving due overtime pay. According to the Complaint, this misclassification violates Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Additionally, the Complaint alleges that Amrock LLC has intentionally infringed upon the FLSA, the Massachusetts Labor Law, and the New Hampshire Minimum Wage Law by not paying for all hours worked and improperly denying overtime compensation.
