Fighting Systemic Wage Theft and Discrimination: Solis v. The Circle Group
Workers at SkyHouse Denver filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of thousands of construction workers nationwide alleging a pattern of wage theft and discrimination at construction sites around the country. Workers accuse Defendants of systematic exploitation by refusing to pay workers for all of the hours they work, refusing to pay overtime for hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week, and pervasive sex and race discrimination that results in Latina female workers being paid less while performing harder and more dangerous work than other employees. Plaintiffs settled the case in 2017, recovering over $800,000 for the class. Towards Justice represented the plaintiffs with co-counsel Lowrey Parady LLP.
