Service Technicians “Call Ahead Time” Overtime Pay
Bright House Network service technicians are often required by policy to “Call Ahead” to schedule and confirm appointments with customers. There is a written company that requires this to be done, but the technicians are not compensated with overtime pay. This is a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Bright House Network is a large company that provides cable TV, internet, and phone service to businesses and consumers. It is the sixth largest owner and operator of cable systems in the United States. The company provides services in California, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, and Alabama.
The Call Ahead Policy and Call’s Ahead With No Answer both constitute hours worked for the cable company. The company does not consider this to be compensated time, but it can be a violation of overtime pay laws. All work performed must be counted toward total hours worked.
