Counsel representing au pairs have reached a $65.5 million class action settlement with 15 companies over claims that the organizations mislead the foreign domestic workers about U.S. wage regulations in an effort to pay them below minimum wage.

Boies Schiller Flexner, which represented the au pairs, and the not-for-profit Towards Justice, announced the settlement Wednesday.
