Dept. of Labor investigating Kansas staffing agency for failing to pay temp workers

failing to pay temporary workers that were contracted to work at Kauffman Stadium during Kansas City Royals baseball games. The agency, Staffing KC — not to be confused with another Kansas City-based temporary agency with a similar name (“Staffing Kansas City, Inc.”) — had failed to pay Royals game workers who had worked in the months leading up to the World Series, which the Royals won. Temporary workers allegedly clocked eight to 10 hours per day for up to a month of work, but never received any form of compensation for their labors. Staffing KC is run by Lorraine and David Swinford. The couple would not comment on why they had not paid their temporary workers because they wanted to speak to a lawyer first, but indicated that they could not pay because they themselves had not been paid. It is unclear from whom they were waiting to be paid. Stadium temporary workers claim that the Swinfords owe them between $350 and $800 apiece, depending on game hours worked over the aforementioned time frame.]]>
