Since cars can break down at any time of the night or day a roadside assistance technician’s job often requires long hours, working more than 40 hours in a single work week. Our unpaid overtime lawsuit attorneys actively represent roadside assistance technicians who have been denied overtime wages from their employer.
We file the claims on the basis that the roadside service company is in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). According to the FLSA, roadside assistance technicians are typically entitled to overtime wages if their hours exceed 40 in a single work 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.
There are several roadside service companies located throughout the U.S., however one of the largest companies is National Roadside Assistance. National Roadside Assistance has over 65,000 service trucks that service all of Canada and the United States 24 hours a day. They provide service to any non-commercial vehicle you are driving at the time of disablement. This includes any car, motorcycle, small trucks under one ton capacity that are owned, leased, or borrowed by a member will be covered.
The services provided by its National Roadside Assistance technician’s include towing, flat tire service, lockout, jumpstart, fuel delivery, minor mechanical adjustments, and winching.
If you or someone you know works at National Roadside Assistance as a roadside service worker and has been denied overtime pay or have not been paid overtime wages in the past you do have legal rights and may be able to pursue an unpaid overtime lawsuit to collect all unpaid wages. Often times, these claims result in significant settlements as they collect money damages for all unpaid wages, payment of penalties, liquidated damages, interest, and attorney’s fees. In addition, if there are several technicians who are similarly situated a class action lawsuit may be able to be pursued on behalf of all workers.
