Isis Parenting ordered to pay $2 million to ex-employees

Isis Parenting, the high-end Boston baby care chain that suddenly shut its doors in 2014, has been ordered to pay $2 million in a class-action lawsuit brought by former employees.

Judge F. Dennis Saylor issued a default judgement against Isis, which court documents show didn’t mount a defense to the lawsuit that was filed last year. The class includes some 200 employees who argued they were entitled to 60 days of back pay and benefits because Isis violated labor laws when it suddenly laid them off, according to court documents.

Isis agreed earlier this year to pay $260,000 to its customers who had previously paid for classes in advance and the state.
