Brown, LLC currently represents a group of employees who worked as hourly-paid dispatchers for Southwest Gas Corporation. In June 2018, a collective and class action lawsuit was commenced in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada, claiming that Southwest Gas Corporation failed to pay dispatchers for all of their hours of work and failed to pay them overtime compensation at the proper rate.
On March 11, 2019, the court approved a global settlement reached by the parties, which makes allegedly unpaid back wages available to all dispatchers who worked for Southwest Gas Corporation from June 22, 2015-October 2018. A court-approved notice has been sent via mail and e-mail to all such individuals, which contains IMPORTANT DEADLINES. Below are links to the notices that were sent to dispatchers, as well as other important case documents.
