Janitors who work for a company that cleans Twin Cities Target stores have reached a preliminary settlement in a class-action lawsuit over unpaid wages…

The complaint alleged that certain managers made workers, mostly at five Twin Cities Target stores, punch into work on certain days using “ghost employee” ID cards. According to the court documents, the “scheme” required the janitors to clock in and sign work cards using the names of former DMS employees at least one or two days a week. The practice meant that those who worked as much as 56 to 80 hours a week received only regular pay.
