On April 30, Napoli Shkolnik PLLC attorneys scored a win in a class action certification motion in Vecchio, et. al. v. Quest Diagnostics, et. al., a case involving the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the employer’s failure to pay minimum wage and overtime in violation of the Act.
A motion was filed in the Southern District of New York to have conditional certification of this class action granted on behalf of lead Plaintiff Maria Vecchio.
This ruling is significant because it allows medical examiners across the country – including both independent contractors and employees – to band together to challenge Quest’s employment practices. The entire class is expected to be around 6,000 examiners.
