FAIRFIELD — The lawsuit filed by former employees who contend the contractor providing laundry services at Travis Air Force Base failed to pay a required $10.22-an-hour wage returns to Solano County Superior Court for trial setting Wednesday.
Former workers for Mississippi-based Karnavati Steel Industries, an industrial launderer, contend lost wages total more than $57,500, according to the court filing. Workers were to be paid an additional $3.50 an hour for health and welfare, the lawsuit states.
Karnavati in court documents denied the assertions in the lawsuit filed last year. A corporation representative declined Thursday to comment on the legal action.
The employees, who last worked for Karnavati in 2012, also contend the corporation did not keep records showing hours worked.
Attorneys for the two sides asked in April for more time in the case and said they were trying to settle the matter, according to court documents.
