Former employees of Lightspeed Commerce USA or ShopKeep residing in Oregon or New York, and other states, can benefit from a recent class action settlement amounting to more than $1 million.
Nicholas Lombardi, et al. v. ShopKeep, Inc.
What Is The Reason Behind The Lawsuit
The ShopKeep Overtime Settlement is a deal forged between the company ShopKeep, Inc. and different plaintiffs Nicholas Lombardi, Colin Bisson, Alexander Skreen, Jaimie Landreth, Jessica Sharp, and Kendall Micone.
The complainants in the ShopKeep Overtime Lawsuit contended that their employer did not pay them the appropriate wages for overtime duty they have rendered. In addition, some argued that they were paid late for their salaries soon after they had parted ways with either ShopKeep or Lightspeed Commerce USA.
As of writing, the New York State Supreme Court for Kings County has not been able to review the merits of the case presented by both sides of the legal battle. Instead, they agreed that entering into a settlement agreement is the best legal route to take.
Nevertheless, the defendant has stressed out that they have not done anything wrong in the situation and retorted that they have fully garnished their personnel’s work payment and wages.
Based on reports, the amount ShopKeep, Inc. will set aside as settlement payment is pegged at $1.775 million and will be distributed to eligible class action members.
