Housekeepers Challenge Omni Hotel Chain in Overtime Lawsuit

Housekeepers Challenge Omni Hotel Chain in Overtime Lawsuit

DALLAS, TX — Omni Hotels Management Corporation, a chain of luxury hotels in many states, has come under much scrutiny after facing a lawsuit citing the chain was not paying employees proper overtime wages required by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Housekeepers within the organization claim they were not paid proper overtime wages after working past 40 hours in a work week.

Can I file an FLSA lawsuit against my employer for unpaid overtime?

Yes, you may be able to file an FLSA lawsuit against your employer for unpaid overtime. FLSA lawsuits seek to hold employers accountable for failing to pay the required wages to their workers.  These claims seek payment of unpaid or underpaid wages, attorney’s fees, and litigation expenses.  Some cases may also force the payment of liquidated damages, which are money damages beyond just the receiving the back pay for unpaid wages.

If your employer owes you overtime wages for work performed, even dating several years back, our top-rated attorneys can file a claim for you to recover the unpaid wages that you are owed.  There are strict time deadlines for filing FLSA lawsuits, so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately. If you wait, you may lose your ability to recover some or all of your back pay.

This case, filed in Dallas, Texas, is still in its preliminary stages, however, the plaintiffs were all found to have similar job duties and pay rates so it could lead to a hefty settlement for the group if the accusations are proven.

Can a Hotel Employee Receive Overtime Pay?

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 if they are not compensated for their time.
