Outsourcing outsourcing company in New Mexico faces $12 million suit
New Mexico has filed a lawsuit against outsourcing company Blue Coat Technologies over alleged labor violations, alleging the company illegally withheld wages, illegally terminated workers and stole money from contractors.
The complaint filed Friday by the New Mexico Public Utilities Commission (PUC) alleges Blue Coat unlawfully withheld wages from employees for over a year and denied them the right to organize for fair wages.
Blue Coat did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Blue Coat is owned by SBA Group, which is one of the largest outsourcing companies in the country.
Bluecoat is also named in a lawsuit filed last month by a local government that accused the company of refusing to provide overtime pay to workers.
Blue Cape’s lawyers did not return a call seeking comment.
Blue coat, based in San Diego, is known for its high-tech solutions to outsourcing.
The company has a reputation for helping clients develop products and services with a high-speed turnaround time.
In a blog post about the lawsuit on Friday, Blue Coat CEO Ryan Kavanagh said he was “deeply sorry for the harm caused” to employees and customers.
“We want to apologize to our employees, customers and our industry partners, and we are committed to working collaboratively to ensure we never do anything like this again,” Kavanag wrote.
