The lawsuit alleges that VIB Event Staffing Inc. intentionally misclassified its workforce as independent contractors, systematically underpaid staff for hours worked and failed to compensate at a rate equal to minimum wage.
If considered employees under employment law, workers would then be owed unpaid wages, vacation pay, holiday pay, overtime pay and other minimum benefits.
