Federal Judge Approves Settlement of Wage Claims Brought by Gas Rig Workers

On March 22nd, a federal judge in Scranton, PA granted approval for a $137,500 settlement in a case in which our firm represented 28 natural gas industry workers who were paid on a day-rate basis. In the lawsuit, we allege these workers were missclassified as “independent contractors” and were not compensated overtime premium pay for hours worked over 40 in a week. The company denies liability.

A copy of the judge’s decision can be found here.
