Handley Farah & Anderson filed a wage theft lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia on behalf of a group of employees of Strickland Waterproofing Company. The lawsuit alleges that Strickland Waterproofing failed to properly compensate workers for work done at the University of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia Tech University, and numerous other construction projects across the Southeastern United States. Specifically, the complaint alleges that those workers regularly worked in excess of forty hours per week at the construction projects but were not paid at the required time and a half overtime rate for this work. The complaint further alleges that the workers were illegally classified as independent contractors, when they were in fact employees.
