The makers of a feature film about a baseball team owe more than $100,000 to the crew, according to a January filing in Georgia federal court.
"The production of SWWWK lacked sufficient financing to pay the crew members. Plaintiffs and similarly situated film production crew members never received any compensation for their work," the complaint said.
On May 25, 2021, the plaintiffs in this case moved for "conditional certification" under the Fair Labor Standards Act. If the judge grants their request, then the plaintiffs will send a notice to other, similarly situated employees informing them that they can join the case.
Conditional certification is valuable for the plaintiffs in a Fair Labor Standards Act case. If other, similarly situated employees are allowed to join the case, they can corroborate the plaintiffs' story and provide additional information to bolster the case. Here at Gardy & Notis, we always request conditional certification as soon as possible after commencing a FLSA case.
The case discussed above is Brennan et al. v. Summer WWK LLC, case number 1:21-cv-00423, in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
