This is not your typical housing legal action.
This is a case in which the federal government is suing an American company over the use of a home IT service, an employee resources machine, and housing resources machine that the company uses to help its employees rent and manage homes.
The lawsuit, filed Monday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, seeks a permanent injunction barring the use and disclosure of the IT services to anyone except as permitted by the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The suit says the company violated the federal Fair Housing Acts by failing to provide an employee resource account and hiring managers to administer the account.
“Employee resource accounts are vital for employees to access their own and other employees’ property and to access a home for themselves and their family,” the complaint says.
“It is not a legitimate business purpose to require an employee to have a specific IT service account, and it violates the Fair Wage and Hour Act to permit an employer to require such an account.”
In an interview with Fox News, Scott Ruppert, the chief counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union, said that the suit is about protecting workers from being harassed by the tech giants.
“The tech companies are going after workers in an attempt to drive them into bankruptcy,” Ruppet said.
“If this company had been in business for 15 years, and had paid the fair wage and hour to its employees, and employed all of its employees as contract employees, I’m sure the tech companies would not be in the position they are in.”
The ACLU has filed lawsuits against a number of tech companies, including Amazon, Facebook, and Google, and says that they violate the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Communications Decency Act.
The tech giant is also facing legal action from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which filed suit against the company last year.
The agency said that it has a number other civil rights complaints in the works.
A spokeswoman for Apple, which owns iPhones and iPads, said in a statement that it “remains committed to protecting employees and our communities.
We will vigorously defend against these allegations and will cooperate with the government’s investigation.”
The company has not commented on the lawsuit.
