Weeks after they were told they would receive some compensation for working at a Halloween haunted house this fall, 66 people, many teenagers, filed suit against the Terror Town operators for allegedly violating the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The Columbia County Superior Court lawsuit was filed Thursday against James B. Collier, Kawanis B. Collier, Betty Ann Collier, Robert Rampulla and Tyler Toepher.

The lawsuit alleges the operators failed to pay the plaintiffs for working at Terror Town on Sudan Drive in Martinez. At the minimum wage, each plaintiff states a claim of several hundred dollars to more than $1,000.

At a meeting last fall, the operators contended the plaintiffs worked as volunteers and would receive some compensation if they worked all hours promised.

Some compensation? You mean

Some compensation? You mean they went to work there without knowing what they were going to be paid? You should know what you will be paid BEFORE you begin to work. This seams to be a real problem in Columbia County.
