Wage Act Uniform Deduction Class Action Certified versus Trinity EMS

Yesterday, November 2, 2017, the Middlesex Superior Court certified our class action against Trinity EMS, based in Lowell, Massachusetts. In the case, we contend that, among other things, Trinity EMS unlawfully deducted charges for required uniforms from employee wages in violation of the Massachusetts law. The applicable regulation states:

An employee or prospective employee who is required to purchase or rent a uniform shall be reimbursed for the actual purchase or rental cost of the uniform.  

454 Code Mass. Regs. 27.05(4)(c).

Any person falling within the following class definition is now a class member in the case:

Individuals employed by Trinity EMS, Inc. who were subjected to deductions from their pay for uniforms at any point between June 29, 2014 and the present.
