About The Settlement

What is this case about?

The Office of the Attorney General for the District of Columbia reached a settlement with Manganaro MidAtlantic LLC, over allegations that the company violated District of Columbia wage-and-hour-laws by misclassifying subcontracted workers as independent contractors when they should have been classified as employees. When workers are misclassified as independent contractors, they are denied rights that are entitled to employees, such as minimum wage, overtime, and paid sick leave.

Who can file a claim form?

If you are a construction worker who installed drywall on a Manganaro project in Washington, D.C. at any time from July 1, 2018 to November 30, 2022, you may be eligible for a share of the settlement fund.

You can file a claim form online here by December 4, 2023.

What does the Settlement provide?

Manganaro paid $575,000 to the District to resolve allegations that it misclassified drywall workers as independent contractors when they should have been classified as employees under the District’s Workplace Fraud Act. The District will use $345,000 of these funds to make payments to affected workers.

Manganaro also paid $230,000 in civil penalties to the District and will implement improved compliance measures.
