Caffarelli & Associates Ltd. Federal Class Action Featured in Crains Chicago Business

Earlier this month, Caffarelli & Associates Ltd. filed a federal class action lawsuit on behalf of Lucio Barrera against his employer, DNJ Intermodal Services. The lawsuit alleges that Mr. Barrera and a class of truck drivers based out of Illinois were misclassified as independent contractors, and that in light of the unlawful deductions being made from their paychecks the drivers would sometimes make less than the minimum wage. Mr. Barrera also personally alleges that DNJ wrongfully confiscated his personal truck when it was in the repair shop and refused to release it — in effect stealing his property. Mr. Barrera’s claims were featured in a news item by Crain’s Chicago Business, which quoted attorney Alejandro Caffarelli. You can read the Crain’s article here:
