Defeat of Class Certification in FLSA and State Wage and Hour Case
Hinckley Allen successfully defeated two motions for class certification in a significant wage and hour case pending in federal court. The firm represented a delivery company in a lawsuit brought by two drivers on behalf of themselves and a putative class seeking back wages for various alleged wage and hour violations. The plaintiffs filed both a motion for conditional certification relating to the federal wage and hour claims and a motion for class certification relating to the state law claims. The court denied both motions for class certification.
