Stout was engaged by counsel representing class plaintiffs in an FLSA matter to quantify the number of straight time and overtime hours worked by those plaintiffs as employees for a New York metro cable and internet installer. The analysis was complicated by the volume and nature of the records, which had been made available by the defendants as carbon copies of the work orders maintained by the plaintiffs during the course of completing their daily duties (often incomplete). Balancing the resources required to review the significant volume of records furnished by the defendants with the expert discovery deadline, Stout developed a reliable methodology to quantify those hours clearly worked by the plaintiffs and estimate the hours worked where work order data was missing, illegible, or otherwise unavailable. In addition to the computation of hours worked, Stout provided assistance to counsel during the discovery process and with the development of their theory of damages. Stout’s analysis resulted in a satisfactory settlement for the plaintiffs prior to any Stout expert testimony.
