Attorney Kevin Stoops secured a $50,000 settlement for an hourly laborer against his construction company employer. The lawsuit, filed in Hawaii federal court, alleged the defendant misclassified the plaintiff and other hourly employees as independent contractors to avoid paying overtime, a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The plaintiff also claimed the defendant violated Hawaiian labor and employment laws by delaying payment and withholding compensation for lodging, board, and other facilities the defendant customarily furnished. Kevin negotiated the impressive result for the client only two months after filing the complaint.
