At éclat Law, we are proud to announce a recent victory that underscores our commitment to upholding the rights of employees. Our dedicated team successfully settled a Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) claim in just one month and one day, securing a $10,000 settlement for our client.
This victory began at the end of June when a hardworking individual reached out to us, referred by another attorney. He had been consistently underpaid while working for his former employer, with every single paycheck missing regular wages or overtime pay. Some paychecks had even been distributed with hourly rates that were arbitrarily different than the rate he was originally hired at. In just four short months, his unpaid wages accumulated to $5,000. This was a clear violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act, which mandates fair compensation for all workers.
Recognizing the strength of our case and the potential costs of litigation, the company chose to settle promptly. Lead Attorney Kevin Ross-Andino expressed satisfaction with the swift resolution, saying, “We are pleased that we could handle this matter quickly, winning justice for yet another employee.”
Our client was not only relieved but thrilled with the outcome. He was grateful for our tenacity and dedication, expressing excitement that we fought for him and satisfaction with the settlement amount. His case is a testament to éclat Law’s relentless pursuit of justice for employees facing workplace issues.
