Alexander Wang Lawsuit Settled, Dismissed Quietly

Posted: Updated:

All you Wang fans can breathe easy: the contentious labor lawsuit brought against Alexander Wang back in March has finally been settled and dismissed.

Women's Wear Daily reports that the plaintiffs, lead by former employees Wenyu Lu and Flor Duante, settled with their former employer two weeks ago for undisclosed terms. Lu initially filed the $50 million civil action suit back in March, claiming that Wang was running a sweatshop-like factory at his New York office. There were claims of 16-hour work days without overtime pay, a windowless office and work-sustained injuries -- all of which Alexander Wang's camp vehemently denied.

Duante and Lu also both claimed that they were fired after filing for worker's comp due to work-related injuries.

Even after a second plaintiff, Duante, added her name to the suit and the case was refiled in federal court, the company continued to contest the veracity of the charges. In late March, a Wang rep told WWD, "The claims regarding sweatshop conditions are completely untrue... 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."

The company can now feel vindicated with the case dismissed. The sides not only settled but also agreed not to appeal the case further, reports WWD.
