Tyson Foods v. Bouaphakeo argued in the Supreme Court

This morning, the Supreme Court considered whether a group of workers at an Iowa meat-processing plant appropriately proceeded as a class on their federal and state wage-and-hour claims where their proof of the amount of hours worked was based in part on an expert time study because the company failed to keep legally required records of the time the employees worked.

The case (in which Public Citizen was co-counsel for the plaintiffs) has important implications for both class action law and wage-and-hour law.
