On September 1, 2023, the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit issued a "writ of body attachment," instructing the United States Marshals Service to take two corporate officials of Haven Salon + Spa into custody 

The corporate officials in question are Timothy and Carley Dillett, who repeatedly failed to comply with an enforced Board order 

In 2021, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) found that Haven Salon + Spa violated the National Labor Relations Act (the Act) by firing an employee who raised concerns about COVID-19 safety protocols during the pandemic 

The NLRB's order mandated several actions from Haven Salon + Spa, including reinstating the employee, expunging the discharge from records, providing relevant backpay records, posting employee rights notices, and filing a certificate of compliance 

Haven Salon + Spa failed to fully comply with the Court-enforced order, leading to the NLRB filing a motion to hold them in contempt in February 2023 

The Court granted the contempt motion, imposing escalating daily fines on Haven Salon + Spa, which could be forgiven if they complied within a week 

Despite the fines, Haven Salon + Spa did not comply, prompting the NLRB to file another motion in August 2023, seeking to liquidate the fines, add the Dilletts as respondents in contempt, and issue a writ of body attachment 

The Court granted the motion, ordering Haven Salon + Spa to pay over $30,000 in fines and attorney's fees. The Dilletts were taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Service 

NLRB General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo commended the efforts to seek compliance with the Board's order and emphasized the consequences for employers who skirt the law
