Investigation and pending class action lawsuit against ABM Industries, the countries largest company for outsourcing janitorial services in the United States employing over 75,000 people.
This class action lawsuit is brought on behalf of former employees who claim the company breaks employment laws, and has done so for the past three years. The lawsuit, filed in Washington state, cites abuses by ABM regarding pay and work conditions that could affect employees nationwide. If proven, ABM Industries faces charges citing violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act, Washington's wage and hour laws, breach of contract, and statutory damages for unpaid wages. The charges against ABM include (1) refusing to pay employees for overtime, (2) forcing employees to work through scheduled meal breaks, and (3) failing to provide 10-minute breaks for every four hours worked. The investigation to date reveals that similar violations may be happening in several ABM businesses throughout the U.S. If you are a Washington resident, who is or was an hourly janitorial employee employed by ABM within the past three years you may be eligible to join this suit.
