  • $940,000 Settlement in Class Action Brought by Sykes Enterprises Call Center Workers

Sommers Schwartz attorney Jason Thompson obtained final approval of a $940,000 settlement in a wage and hour class action against Sykes Enterprises, Inc. The nationwide lawsuit, litigated in federal court in Minnesota, included some 4,000 Plaintiffs employed by Sykes as call-center and at-home customer service agents who claimed that the company violated the federal Fair Labor Standards Act by refusing to pay them for pre-shift login time and computer boot-up time, as well as post-shift responsibilities such as call completion.
