Brown student files class-action lawsuit against University for tuition, fee refunds

May 1, 2020 11 comments

A Brown student filed a class-action lawsuit against the University demanding a refund for tuition, fees and/or room and board he claims he was unlawfully charged for because the COVID-19 pandemic forced the University to close its campus and cancel in-person classes.

The plaintiffs in the BuDS lawsuit are seeking compensation for time employees spent "on-call" for work. The lawsuit looks to address an alleged violation of state labor law, citing intentional underpayment and stringent rules for "on-call" workers.
