By now, most people have probably seen the commercials for the new "Hopper" that is being advertised. Our firm is currently investigating claims made by cable installers of further wage and hour violations tied to new Hopper installs and changed payment rates for cable installers
Low Rates for Cable Installers as a Result of the Hopper in Violation of the FLSA
Our firm has become aware that contractors and sub-contractors are changing their piece rate wage policies affecting how cable installers are paid per job as a result of Hopper installs. Contractors are now reducing payment rates to cable installers as a result of the increase in the number of installations that are occurring per location or household. These changes in practice are essentially lowering the rate per installation that cable installers receive and has prompted our firm to review an increased number of possible wage, hour and overtime violations. Our firm has also received information that the Department of Labor has taken on investigations related to these changes in contractor and sub-contractor payments resulting from Hopper installations.
