JASON WARD

Defendants

 

 

MEMORANDUM OF DECISION AND ORDER

 ON DEFENDANT CREDICO (USA) LLC’S MOTION

TO DISMISS OR IN THE ALTERNATIVE TO STAY

 

 

This putative class action alleges a failure to pay minimum wage and overtime in violation of G.L.c. 149 § 148 and G.L.c. 151 § 1B and a misclassification of plaintiffs as independent contractors in violation of   G.L.c. 149 § 148B.   The defendant, Credico (USA) LLC (Credico) is also a named defendant in two federal court actions filed in the Southern District of New York.  Martin v. Sprint/United Management Co., Civ. A. No. 15-05237 (Martin) and Vasto v. Credico (USA) LLC, Civ. A. No. 15-09298 (Vasto).  Both actions make fact allegations against Credico similar to the instant case, and the plaintiffs in this action, Kanika Misra and Craig Levine, affirmatively opted in to the Vasto action so as to be bound by its resolution.  Both Vasto and Martin, however, are brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. 201 et seq.., which differs in important respects from Massachusetts wage and hours laws. read more
