Nearly 100,000 au pairs brought to US win $65.5 million settlement in Denver lawsuit

Friday 00:35 GMT

Nearly 100,000 au pairs, mostly women, from around the world who provided low-cost child care for American families, will share in a $65.5 million tentative settlement of a lawsuit against the 15 companies that brought these domestic assistants to the U.S.

“This settlement, the hard-fought victory of our clients who fought for years on behalf of about 100,000 fellow au pairs, will be perhaps the largest settlement ever on behalf of minimum wage workers and will finally give au pairs the opportunity to seek higher wages and better working conditions,” said David Seligman, director of Denver-based Towards Justice, which filed the lawsuit in 2014.
