Sampson v. Knight Transportation, Inc.

About this Case:

Terrell Marshall Law Group is pursuing a second lawsuit against Knight Transportation to recover unpaid wages for employees who worked as drivers for Knight while residing in the state of Washington. Plaintiff Valerie Sampson claims Knight has engaged in a common scheme of wage and hour violations, including failing to pay drivers for all of their work, failing to pay drivers for their rest breaks, and making unlawful deductions to the wages of drivers. The lawsuit is brought under Washington’s wage and hour laws, which ensure the fair treatment of workers. Plaintiff filed her complaint in October 2016 on behalf of all current and former employees of Knight Transportation who, at any time from July 1, 2013 to the present, worked as drivers for the company while residing in the state of Washington.

Case Status:

Plaintiff Sampson intends to file her motion for class certification in early 2018. If class certification is granted, Class Counsel will notify all other members of the Class of their rights and options with respect to the pending litigation.

TMLG recently settled a related case, Helde v. Knight Transportation, Inc., for $1.45 million, not including attorneys’ fees and costs. Class Members in the Helde matter are excluded from participating in the Sampson matter. If you are a Class Member in Helde v.
