Products or Services
This is an ongoing investigation and oending class action lawsuit against ThyssenKrupp Waupaca, Inc,. for back wages alleged to be owed to thousands of foundry workers, including workers at the Etowah, Tennessee plant.
ThyssenKrupp Waupaca, Inc. is headquartered in Waupaca, Wisconsin, and is a subsidiary of ThyssenKrupp AG, a German conglomerate.
The class action lawsuit was filed on Wednesday June 4, 2008 in federal court in Green Bay, Wisconsin, which is close to ThyssenKrupp Waupaca's headquarters. The lawsuit seeks to represent employees at all ThyssenKrupp Waupaca locations, including foundries in Wisconsin, Indiana and Tennessee.
The class action lawsuit alleges workers were not paid from the moment they start putting on protective equipment in locker rooms, as required by the Fair Labor Standards Act and various state laws. The lawsuit also alleges employees should be paid until they completely remove their equipment and shower.
The time workers in industrial settings spend getting ready for their shifts, and for finishing the end of their shifts, is significant. In some reported cases, up to 30 minutes each day is spent working off the clock. Millions of dollars have been paid to settle some of these class action lawsuits, and some workers have been awarded thousands of dollars in back pay.
