    Legacy Flooring LW LLC Update

    The attorneys at Nichols Kaster and Donati Law are announcing a significant development in an unpaid wage collective action brought on behalf of store account managers, independent contractor estimators, or other positions with similar job duties employed by Legacy Flooring LW LLC (“Legacy Flooring”) after a federal district court in Tennessee granted the plaintiffs’ request to conditionally certify a collective.

    The case was initially filed in August 2018 by two former estimators for Legacy Flooring.  The named plaintiffs filed their claims individually and on behalf of all similarly situated workers. The Complaint alleges that Legacy Flooring violated the federal Fair Labor Standards Act when it denied overtime pay to store account managers, independent contractor estimators, or other positions with similar job duties. The named plaintiffs seek unpaid wages and liquidated damages for themselves and all other similarly situated store account managers, independent contractor estimators, or other positions with similar job duties.

    In the Court’s March 5, 2019 Order, the Judge found that plaintiffs had produced sufficient evidence at this stage of the litigation to support their claim that Legacy denied overtime pay to store account managers, making the case appropriate for collective action treatment and notice to be sent to others similarly situated.  The Court is permitting plaintiffs to mail and email the notice to all persons who worked as store account managers, independent contractor estimators, or in positions with similar job duties, for Legacy Flooring at any time from three years prior to when notice is sent to present.
