Satellite TV Technicians' Wage Suit Certified

Three technicians brought a collective action under the FLSA against Integrated Electronic Technologies, Inc. (IET) and DISH, on behalf of themselves and all current and former piece-rate satellite technicians who performed DISH work orders, through IET, for the three-year period preceding the filing of plaintiffs' complaint in August 2011.

Plaintiffs' amended complaint included three claims: (1) violation of the FLSA; (2) unlawful deprivation of wages under the same; and (3) a state claim under the Louisiana Wage Payment Act. Plaintiffs alleged that IET and DISH were joint employers where job-specific requirements were governed and controlled significantly by DISH. IET and DISH failed to pay for all hours worked and failed to keep accurate wage statements and records.

DISH's motion to dismiss was denied and the Eastern District of Louisiana granted certification. The class members were given 30 days to opt into the lawsuit.
