Jail Worker Unpaid Overtime Lawsuit Lawyers

Jail workers are often required to work more than a 40 hour week but do not receive overtime pay.  This happens frequently in jails operated by both government entities and private companies.   Jail workers are generally eligible to recover unpaid overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act.  This law requires time and half wages for overtime hours.

Unpaid overtime may be due to these classifications of jail employees:

  • Administrative Staff
  • Nursing Staff
  • Medical Staff
  • Jail Guards
  • Deputy Officers
  • Correctional Officers
  • Court Officers
  • Inmate Coordinators
  • Jail Inspectors
  • IT Technicians
  • Parole Officers
  • Watch Commanders
  • Officers

If you are a jail worker and work more than 40 hours per week, you are likely entitled to overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act.  Your company may argue that you are “exempt,” or not entitled, to overtime pay but this may not be true.  Overtime pay lawsuits are being filed for jail workers who have been unlawfully denied time and a half pay for working more than 40 hours per week.
