$1,629.05 Settlement in Suit over D.C. Jail’s Failure to Pay Wages

The District of Columbia paid $1,629.05 to settle the Lawsuit of ex-employee Greg Jackson for failure to pay wages for his land maintenance work.

While working at the D.C. Jail in 1997 through September, 1998 Jackson, a supervisor over a minimum security prisoner maintenance crew, worked five days a week through his half hour lunch, but was never paid for this extra 2.5 hours worked per week.

His complaint alleged deliberate, intentional and knowing violation of statutes by defendant, resulting in his unpaid wages.

Jackson accepted settlement on June 26, 2000. He was represented by Lake Ridge attorney J. Scott Krein. See: Jackson v. District of Columbia, U.S. District Court, District of Columbia, Case No. cv-02800.
