On June 30, 2015, the Marlborough Law Firm filed a prospective class and collective action lawsuit against Call-A-Head, Inc. and the company’s President Charles W. Howard in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
The complaint alleges that the defendants failed to pay their service technicians overtime for working more than forty hours. It further alleges that Call-A-Head has been sued at least six times for alleged failure to pay overtime in violation of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and the New York Labor Law, but the never changed the company’s overtime policy.
Plaintiff Juan Vargas was a Call-A-Head service technician. He will ask the Court to certify a class of all similarly situated service technicians during the last six years.
Christopher Marlborough, Principal Attorney of the Marlborough Law Firm stated, “Call-A-Head’s motto is ‘We’re #1 at picking up # 2.’ Unfortunately, the defendants did not treat their workers like number one. We intend to vigorously prosecute this case and see that all of defendants’ hard working service technicians receive the compensation that they deserve.”
