The Getman Sweeney law office filed a lawsuit against Central Refrigerated Service Inc.(CRS) and Central Leasing, Inc. (CLI) on behalf of truckers who lease trucks from CLI and are treated as "owner operators" by CRS. This lawsuit raises two claims: that the truckers are really employees and not independent contractors and thus entitled to minimum wage under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and must be reimbursed for deductions made from their pay, and that the truckers are held in "forced labor" in violation of federal law.
