Lawsuit Alleges Wage and Benefit Theft by 5 Prominent DC Construction Companies

D.C.’s attorney general has filed a lawsuit against five construction companies and brokers claiming they misclassified hundreds of workers, depriving them of benefits and wages.

D.C. Attorney General Brian Schwalb claims some local construction companies are “stealing” from workers.

“Labor brokers and the contractors that employ them not only steal from workers responsible for building our city but exact an unfair competitive advantage over businesses that play by the rules,” Schwalb said in a news release. “My office will always have workers’ backs and ensure that all businesses in the District compete on a level playing field.”

In the lawsuit, the attorney general said that the Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, WG/Welch Mechanical Contractors and three labor brokers violated the District’s wage and hour laws.
