Trouble time continues for Department of Labor. Total proceeds of the labor bonds involved in the class action by the alien workers raised upto $557,977. The class action was filed against Labor, Secretary Gil M. San Nicolas, Deputy Secretary Cinta Kaipat, and Labor Director Barry Hirshbein.
On behalf of the workers who have unpaid wages and other damages awarded by Labor administrative orders, Myers asked the Superior Court to compel Labor and co-defendants to enforce the surety’s obligations under the statutory labor bonds.
Lawyer Robert Myers asked the court to immediately order Labor to collect all surety bonds issued by the surety or insurance companies.
