Rhodes, et al. v. Computer Sciences Corp. (Back Wages)

Five former employees sued Computer Sciences Corporation alleging the company owed them for work performed in Iraq, Kuwait, and Afghanistan between September 2010 and June 2012. They claimed they worked a minimum of 12 hours a day for 7 days a week for which CSC was contractually obligated to pay them $2,625, but that CSC paid them only $1,298. One plaintiff additionally claimed he had been fired for questioning management about pay, in alleged violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. In December 2014, the court ruled in favor of the plaintiffs. (The judgment was stayed pending CSC’s appeal. Damages have not been imposed yet, although CSC was ordered to post an appellate bond of $166,000.)
