Dick's settles with former Neb. worker over pay

Law Center Posted on

Dick's Sporting Goods Inc. has reached a settlement with a former employee over just payment for her work.

Court records show U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon dismissed the lawsuit filed by Dannette Stackhouse, citing the settlement. Details were not disclosed.

Stackhouse's attorney Peter Glennon declined to comment. A message left Wednesday for a Dick's attorney wasn't immediately returned.

Stackhouse said in her lawsuit that employees were forced to work through breaks, were unpaid for overtime and were sometimes locked in the store until work was finished. Her lawsuit was filed on behalf of roughly 900 Dick's workers in Nebraska and sought class-action status.

Stackhouse worked in the sporting goods retailer's Papillion location.

Pittsburgh-based Dick's says it has more than 420 stores in 41 states, including three in Nebraska.
