Thousands of people relied on that promise. But the promise was false. After Bloomberg lost the Democratic nomination, his campaign unceremoniously dumped thousands of staffers, leaving them with no employment, no income, and no health insurance. And, worse still, the Bloomberg campaign did this during the worst global pandemic since 1918, in the face of a looming economic crisis. Now thousands of people who relied on the Bloomberg campaign’s promise are left to fend for themselves.
Gupta Wessler PLLC and Emery Celli Brinckerhoff & Abady LLP represent former Bloomberg campaign field staffers who filed a putative class action lawsuit on March 23, 2020 against the Bloomberg campaign for falsely inducing its staffers to join the campaign by promising them the opportunity to work on both the primary and general election. The lawsuit is called Sklair v. Mike Bloomberg 2020, Inc., No. 20 Civ. 2495 (S.D.N.Y). The named plaintiffs in the lawsuit, Alexis Sklair, Sterling Rettke, and Nate Brown, will ask the Court to certify a nationwide class of more than 2,000 Bloomberg campaign field staffers in order to seek compensation for the members of the class.
