Dinsmore Stark Prevails in Class Action "Wage Theft" Litigation

Attorneys Raymond Dinsmore of Dinsmore Stark, Attorneys at Law and Richard Hayber of Hayber Law Firm, LLC defeated an employer’s motion for summary judgment in a wage theft case brought about by an employer’s failure to pay its employees their accrued but unused vacation pay upon separation. The complaint brought by a former employee of telecommunications company Decisive Communications, Inc. on behalf of himself and his co-workers vindicates the rights of workers to receive the cash value of their unused vacation time upon conclusion of employment. The court rejected the employer’s argument that its former employees forfeited their right to payout of vacation time because the obligation to pay had been transferred to some of the employees’ new employer.
