$1.6 Million

Settlement for Backpay Recovery and Wrongful Termination

The Case: After construction at the V.C. Summer Nuclear Plant near Jenkinsville, South Carolina, abruptly halted in July 2017, thousands of contract workers were immediately terminated without prior notice. Nearly 75 of the affected workers filed a WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification) Act class action lawsuit against Fluor Enterprises, Inc., the leading construction contractor on the project.

The Outcome: During the legal team’s investigation into the WARN Act violations, they discovered that Fluor withheld overtime pay for a group of its employees for extended periods of time. Based on this information, a Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was filed to recover these workers’ backpay, resulting in the recovery of $1.59 million on behalf of the clients.
