Illumiti Class Action – Employee Misclassification

On June 30, 2020 Monkhouse Law initiated a proposed $7.5 million class action against Illumiti Inc. Illumiti is a temporary help services firm that provides workers to client firms implementing System Applications and Products (“SAP”) software. Illumiti has been operating for the past 20 years and provides workers to client firms in a wide range of industries including construction, paper and packaging, manufacturing, mining and others. 

Illumiti chronically misclassified their workers as independent contractors and did not have a system in place to compensate for public holiday, vacation, and overtime pay. Illumiti also had some workers sign indemnity clauses to avoid financial responsibility. These are invalid and void because workers and employers are not permitted under law to contract out of the Employment Standards Act (ESA). Also contrary to the ESA, certain workers were restricted from entering into an employment relationship with the client companies. 

The statement of claim is available here.
