Heather Dechert, Esq. and Michael McClaren, Esq. recently resolved wage and hour claims against the Town of Henrietta brought by former independent contractors asserting that they were denied overtime pay and benefits because they were misclassified as independent contractors. Through successful motions to dismiss, the team was able to limit the case to a Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) claim for unpaid overtime, and eliminate ERISA and state law claims for other unpaid wages and benefits. The parties agreed to a positive resolution of the FLSA claim with no admission of liability, and the agreement was recently approved by the Federal District Court for the Western District of New York
