Our firm is pleased to announce the conclusion of the class action case we brought against Six Flags New England on behalf of thousands of seasonal employees. After extensive litigation, the Suffolk Superior Court recently approved a settlement which resulted in a $4 million fund to compensate seasonal workers for unpaid overtime. In addition to significant overtime distributions to workers, unclaimed funds will be distributed to the Community Legal Aid of Springfield, Massachusetts, a legal aid organization located close to where a majority of Six Flags’ seasonal employees lived.
These cases are only possible when employees come forward and raise concerns about their employer’s compensation practices. The Six Flags case began with two employees contacting our firm and then serving as class representatives in the case. In addition to receiving overtime payments, each of the class representatives was awarded an additional $15,000 for their service in representing the class.
