Class Members Receive Initial Payments in $7,140,000 Call-A-Head Lawsuit Settlement

On February 2021, initial payments were sent to class members as part of the $7,140,000 million settlement approved by the Court in Vargas v. Howard, et al. The complaint alleged that defendants failed to pay their portable toilet service technicians overtime for working more than forty hours. The case was filed in June 2015 and the Marlborough Law firm was appointed Co-Lead Class Counsel in 2018.

The settlement was approved by Magistrate Judge Debra Freeman of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on October 30, 2020. More than 1,200 hundred class members will receive payments under the terms of the settlement.

“We are thrilled that settlement payments are being distributed,” said Christopher Marlborough, Principal Attorney of the Marlborough Law Firm.  “This is a tremendous result for the class and concludes more than five years of litigation.”

"I have a message for those employers who break this nation's labor laws and prey on vulnerable workers: It ends today."

 - Hilda Solis, United States Secretary of Labor (2009-2013)
