Major League Baseball Violates Labor Laws with Unpaid Volunteers
Aug 7 13
Major League Baseball illegally employed thousands of unpaid volunteers at for-profit events, including last month's All-Star FanFest in New York City, in violation of federal and state minimum wage laws, Outten & Golden LLP alleged in New York federal court. The class action complaint, filed on behalf of John Chen, of Rego Park, N.Y., accuses MLB, which has annual revenues of about $7 billion, of failing to pay workers minimum wages required by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the New York Labor Law (NYLL). The lawsuit seeks to force MLB to stop soliciting and accepting work from unpaid volunteers, to allow those who cannot afford to work for free to work at FanFest and other events, and to recover wages for all unpaid volunteers who worked at FanFest and related events since August 5, 2007. The lawsuit alleges MLB also violated labor laws at the 2012 All-Star FanFest in Kansas City, the 2011 All-Star FanFest in Phoenix, and the 2008 All-Star FanFest in New York with use of unpaid volunteers. The lawsuit asserts that unpaid volunteers were required to attend mandatory orientations and information sessions, work multiple shifts, and submit to background checks but were paid no wages. Outten & Golden LLP will seek to have the lawsuit certified as a class action to recover unpaid wages, interest, and attorneys' fees and costs for unpaid volunteers. This case is John Chen, et al., v. Major League Baseball, et al., No. 13 Civ. 5494, in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. The defendants are MLB, Major League Baseball Properties, The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball, doing business as Major League Baseball, and Major League Baseball Enterprises, Inc.
