/EINPresswire.com/ Telephone directory delivery workers could be eligible to join a certified nationwide class action lawsuit according to a recent decision by a Houston court.

Telephone directory delivery workers could be eligible to join a certified nationwide class action lawsuit according to a recent decision

by a Houston court. The court has ordered notice to be sent to 114,312 potential “opt-in” plaintiffs who may have been underpaid.

Delivery workers for Directory Distributing Associates (DDA) who delivered AT&T phone books filed suit alleging that they were hired as independent contractors, but should have been paid as employees, and been entitled to additional pay under the minimum wage laws. These delivery worker plaintiffs sought class certification as a collective action under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which was granted, conditionally, by the court.

The Texas court has ordered notice be sent to all current and past delivery workers of Directory Distributing Associates who delivered AT&T phone books since June 25, 2009. These delivery workers could be entitled to additional pay for their work.

Delivery workers who want to pursue back pay and join the suit must read the court-authorized Notice and sign and return the electronic Consent form at: www.ddadeliveryworkersgroup.com/. The Consent form must be signed on-line or postmarked by March 29, 2013. The attorneys will not ask for out-of-pocket payment of fees or case expenses for delivery workers, they will seek fees from the defendants in the case.

A copy of the petition filed with the court may also be found on the website.
