Choice Hotels Overtime Claims

ROCKVILLE, Md. — Choice Hotels is an American hospitality company founded in Maryland in 1939. The company operates several brands with over 7,000 locations worldwide. Choice Hotels is headquartered in Rockville, Maryland.

Choice Hotels operates several different hotels including: Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality Inn, Sleep Inn, Clarion, Cambria Suites, Mainstay Suites, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel, Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn, and Ascend Collection

Hotel employees are often required to work long hours and extend their workday beyond their regular shift.  In addition to working extra hours, many hotel employees are “shorted” on their break and rest times by being required to be “on call” and accessible at all times.  Some hotels require employees to have hand held radios or cell phones so that they can be contacted when a customer makes a request or if management needs something done.  Although this helps provide better service to the customer, it is not fair to the hotel employee and violates federal overtime pay laws.

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the company must track all hours worked and pay overtime wages for work in excess of 40 hours per week.   In general, “hours worked” includes all time an employee must be on duty, or on the employer’s premises or at any other prescribed place of work, from the beginning of the first principal activity of the work day to the end of the last principal work activity of the workday. In addition, this can include time taken away from meal and rest breaks.

The FLSA and many state laws require that hotels pay their employees for overtime.  Many salaried managers and employees are also entitled to overtime pay even if they are paid a salary.  Hotels often misclassify a person as a manager or some other position to attempt to avoid paying overtime, but this is a clear violation of the law.  If you are a hotel employee and your company is denying you overtime pay or has not paid you overtime wages in the past you do have legal rights and should contact our award winning law firm today.
