SAN FRANCISCO – A Westminster man who delivered telephone directories for AT&T has filed a class-action suit alleging that it and another company failed to fairly compensate their employees.
James Krawczyk filed a complaint on behalf of others similarly situated on May 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Directory Distributing Associates Inc. and AT&T Corp. citing violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for the defendant until February 2013 and that he worked for more than 40 hours but was not paid any overtime compensation. He also alleges he and other members of the class were misclassified as independent contractors. The plaintiff also holds Directory Distributing Associates Inc. and AT&T Corp. responsible because the defendants allegedly disregarded their obligations to their employees by paying them minimum wages and straight time for all the hours worked during the week.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid back wages, liquidated damages equal to the unpaid wages owed, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Mark C. Molumphy of Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy LLP in Burlingame.
