Budget Car Rental Overtime Lawsuit

Budget Overtime Lawsuit Budget is an American car rental company that was founded in 1958 in Los Angeles, California. In 1960, headquarters were moved to Chicago, Illinois and the company expanded with new franchised and company owned locations. Today, there are over 800 locations in the United States, of which 600 are company operated. Internationally, there are roughly 150 company operated locations and 1,800 franchised locations. Budget employees over 21,000 employees throughout the world. Today, the corporate headquarters is located in Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey.

Employees at Budget often work more than 40 hours per week but do not receive overtime pay.  Most car rental employees are entitled to overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA).  However, many companies, including Budget, either unlawfully deny overtime wages or simply do not pay them.   This can give rise to an overtime pay lawsuit.

For Budget workers, the FLSA requires employers to pay time-and-a-half for all overtime.  In calculating the number of hours worked, the employer must consider all required work performed in all facilities and departments, both before and after a shift, including staff meetings and required paid training.  Some states have also enacted overtime laws that regulate the number of hours an employee can work within 24 hours before receiving overtime.

The largest rental car companies in the United States are Enterprise, Hertz, Budget, Avis, Dollar, Thrifty, National, Alamo, Payless, Fox Rent A Car, and Ace Rent a Car.  There are other smaller car rental and specialty vehicle rental companies.
