A court recently authorized a lawsuit alleging that certain workers who built Washington, D.C.’s new soccer stadium were underpaid to go forward as a collective action. The Kaplan Law Firm and the Handley Farah & Anderson Law Firm represent Plaintiffs in the case.
The lawsuit alleges that employees of Dynamic Contracting, Inc., a subcontractor of Turner Construction Company, were underpaid for their work in constructing the recently opened District of Columbia soccer stadium, which is home of the D.C. United Major League Soccer team and which is known as Audi Field. Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that workers were underpaid because they were paid an overtime rate lower than the rate required by law and because, for certain weeks, they were paid at a lower hourly rate than what was legally required.
Defendants in the case are Dynamic Contracting and Turner. Because a D.C. Superior Court Judge has ruled that the case may go forward as a collective action, certain former employees of Dynamic who worked at the stadium are permitted to join the lawsuit. Former employees who do not do anything may lose their rights. Although affected former employees may ask to join the case, the court has not yet decided whether the Defendants violated the law.
