In this Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) collective action lawsuit Dr. Steward was retained by to perform three separate analyses of the economic damages in this case. In performing these analyses Dr. Steward and his staff reviewed payroll records employment contracts personnel documents and court records. First Dr. Steward calculated the plaintiffs’ and class members’ economic damages based on the provisions of the Migrant and seasonal Agricultural worker Protection act (AWPA). The damages were calculated by determining the wages each plaintiff and class member would have been paid had they been compensated for each hour they actually worked. In addition to the total earnings each plaintiff would have earned the amount of incurred expenses including immigration and travel related expenses were added to the damage calculation. The amount each plaintiff or class member was actually paid by the defendants was subtracted from the amount they would have earned for all hours worked and expenses incurred. In the second analysis Dr. Steward calculated the economic damages for the plaintiffs who opted-in to the FLSA lawsuit. Under FLSA it is assumed each plaintiff would have been paid the prevailing hourly rate on if they worked more than 40 hours in the workweek and a lesser amount if they worked fewer hours. FLSA unpaid wages and FLSA liquidated damages (equal to the unpaid wages) are calculated using both a two and three year statute of limitations. In the third analysis Dr. Steward calculated the economic damages of plaintiffs and class members based on instances in which they did not work 40 hours in one week. This is relevant because class members allege that the opportunity to work 40 hours per week was one of the conditions of their employment. Dr. Steward calculated the total wages owed for un-offered hours based on the data from prior planting seasons. Second Dr. Steward reviewed the compensation scheme utilized by the defendant. He examined the company’s description of their compensation system reviewing documents including the computerized hard copy production logs written production logs time sheets and ADP payroll records. In the third section of the report Dr. Steward was asked to study the off-the-clock work the plaintiffs state they performed in conjunction with their employment at the defendant.
