Charter Settles Wage and Hour Class for $18 Million

Charter Communications has settled a wage and hour class action for unpaid overtime. On May 24, a Wisconsin federal judge granted preliminary approval for the $18 million settlement. The plaintiffs claim that Charter violated federal and state overtime and wage laws. The plaintiffs performed several duties without being paid wages and the defendant failed to pay overtime compensation. The class consists of 3,650 members, mostly field technicians for Charter Communications LLC. The class includes all technicians employed by Charter in California, Michigan, Minnesota, or Missouri at some time between August 28, 2005 and August 28, 2008 or in Illinois, Nevada, Nebraska, Oregon, or Washington between May 24, 2007 and May 24, 2010. The settlement will give $12.5 million to the class members, and the average payout for each member is $3,500.
