Kansas District Court Affirms Jury Verdict Awarding Overtime to Meat Workers

On August 21, 2012, a Kansas District Court denied post-trial motions by Tyson Foods in a donning and doffing case in which a jury found that it violated the FLSA by failing to pay Kansas beef workers for all time spent working. The district court’s opinion addresses various issues, including the propriety of conditional certification, the propriety of representative testimony, and propriety of liquidated damages. This is just the latest victory for wage and overtime lawyers seeking to vindicate the wage rights of food processing workers.
