More Factory Workers Come Forward to Join Class Action Overtime Pay Lawsuit Against Auto Glass Maker Fuyao

CLEVELAND– Two former workers for an Ohio auto glass manufacturing plant recently stepped forward to join a class action unpaid overtime lawsuit against the company claiming the defendant failed to pay potentially hundreds of current and former workers for all their hours worked, including overtime wages. The complaint names Moraine-based Fuyao Glass America, owned by a Chinese-based corporation, as the defendant, and seeks compensation of all unpaid wages, interest on back pay, attorneys fees, and other damages.

The unpaid overtime lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, claims the defendant violated several provisions of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA which sets national standards such as the 40-hour work week and one and a half times a worker’s average hourly wage for overtime. Among the chief complaints in the lawsuit are allegations that the defendant began making automatic 30-minute deductions from workers’ time cards for meal and rest breaks.

However, the plaintiffs claim that they were frequently unable to take these breaks, in full or in part, and did not have the option to clock in and out of their shifts themselves to properly record all their actual hours worked. The lawsuit claims the system resulted in workers either spending part of their meal break waiting to be relieved by other workers or being forced to return early to work from their breaks.

As a result of the automatic deductions, many of the employees actually worked more than 40 hours per week but did not receive their premium overtime pay calculated at one and a half times their average hourly rate. Furthermore, the complaint alleges that the defendants violated the FLSA by failing to provide accurate wage statements to employees. The lawsuit asks the court to grant the claim class action status to allow other similarly situated workers the opportunity to join together to recover all their unpaid wages and hold the defendants accountable for their actions.
