Last Friday, March 23, 2012, the case against Alexander Wang was refilled to the New York Federal Court. Now, the plaintiffs request that the suit be given full class-action status, which could potentially result in a lot more money in damages for the former employees.
Alexander Wang has been since the beginning denying Lu's allegations, in particular in relation to running a sweatshop. Wang's reps also state that Lu was actually fired for harassing and bullying his co-workers:
The claims regarding sweatshop conditions are completely untrue. In reality, this case was filed by an individual who was let go by the company as a result of serious harassment issues. We stand by our decision to promote a safe workplace environment for all employees regardless of false claims that may be waged against us in retaliation.We'll keep you posted of the developments of this case.
