Labor Ready Inc.

A lawsuit has been filed and is seeking class action status against Labor Ready Inc., a manual labor temporary employment service, for illegally charging its clients a nominal fee for opting to receive their earnings in cash at the end of each workday. The lawsuit was filed in the US Federal District Court in Rochester on behalf of New York Labor Ready clients who are paid via cash dispensing machines found in Labor Ready's offices since 2000. Clients are charged $1 to $1.99 each time the cash machines are used and this allegedly violates the state's labor laws. Labor Ready's temporary workers can receive a paycheck check drawn on Fleet Bank or daily vouchers that can be redeemed by using the cash dispensing machines. However, there are no Fleet Banks in Chemung County and since many of Labor Ready's clients don't have accounts with local banks, they cannot cash the checks.
