Iglesias-Mendoza v. La Belle Farm, Inc.

Case | Civ.

We successfully settled a major class action against a poultry plant in Sullivan County. Many of the laborers worked over 80 hours per week, but were never paid overtime and often did not earn the minimum wage.  On January 26, 2007, the Court issued a groundbreaking decision granting the Plaintiffs’ motion for class certification.  In the end, nearly one hundred workers benefited from a several hundred thousand dollar settlement agreement, which including a monitoring arrangement to assess ongoing housing and wage-and-hour issues.
