Former Idaho Call Center Employees Sue after Layoffs

Comstock

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Three former employees of a Boise call center laid off with some 1,600 other workers have filed a lawsuit contending they were led to believe their jobs would last longer. The Idaho Statesman reports that the lawsuit filed late last month says the former employees suffered harm when Maximus Inc. laid them off despite initially pitching the jobs as lasting much longer. The company last year hired about 1,800 workers for its Boise facility to help people sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The company on Feb. 24 sent a letter to employees announcing that 1,600 would be laid off in April when the insurance enrollment period ended. The lawsuit seeks $80,000 and class-action status. Nine other employees sued the company in January.
