Yes, a salt truck driver is entitled to overtime pay during the winter months if they worked over 40 hours in a single work week. If you believe you have been denied wage benefits, it is important to consult an experienced unpaid overtime lawsuit attorney about your possible case.
During the winter months, salt truck drivers are required to work long hours and many of times hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a work week. This is partly due to the fact that many salt truck drivers are called out in the middle of the night to salt before an impending snowstorm or while a snowstorm is in progress. These shifts are often long and tiring.
If your employer is denying you overtime or has failed to pay you for overtime hours worked, they may be in violation of the FLSA and you may be able to file a lawsuit to collect back all owed wages.
