The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last week to hear Mohawk Industries Inc.’s contention that it shouldn’t face a civil racketeering suit could resolve disagreements about how courts handle similar suits by workers complaining that their employers drive down wages by hiring illegal immigrants willing to work cheap.

This is the claim made by former and current hourly employees of the Calhoun, Ga.-based carpet giant in their 2004 class action filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. The employees’ case already has survived Mohawk’s challenges in the district court and the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
