Former H-2B workers seek approval on TruGreen settlement

August 19, 2014 -  By

Former foreign workers of TruGreen Landcare are further urging a New York federal court to grant final approval to their $1.8 million collective and class action settlement with the company, according to Law360.

The class, which comprises about 119 opt-in employees, declares TruGreen didn’t reimburse them for visa and travel costs, therefore failed to pay them minimum wage.

The suit began in March 2010, when Otoniel Sosa Teoba, a Mexican citizen who was employed by TruGreen through the H-2B visa program, filed suit against TruGreen.
