Workers Receive Collective Certification for Wage Lawsuit Against Tyson

A federal judge in Arkansas on July 24 granted a collective of Tyson Foods workers class certification in a lawsuit that alleges the company subjected the workers to unlawful wage practices after a payroll system was hacked in 2021.

The lawsuit was filed by Annie Thornton on behalf of other employees that were in a similar situation. The original case started in April 2022.
