May 7, 2015 at 4:09 AM (PT)
The class action suit filed by former intern LIANE ARIAS last year against CLEAR CHANNEL (now iHEARTMEDIA) over back wages has been settled, a court filing indicates.
The suit in U.S. Federal Court in the Southern District of NEW YORK, one of several against companies with unpaid internships filed after a court ruling that interns are covered by NEW YORK labor law and the Fair Labor Standards Act, alleged that CLEAR CHANNEL used ARIAS as an unpaid intern in AUGUST through DECEMBER 2011 for duties that would properly be handled by a paid employee.
The filing indicates that a settlement was reached on MARCH 17th and that an update on the execution of settlement documents is due by TOMORROW (5/8).
