Overtime Class Action Lawsuits

WASHINGTON D.C — Overtime class action lawsuits are filed by employees against their employers who violate the Fair Labors Standards Act (FLSA).    An overtime lawsuit seeks compensation for unpaid wages in the past and into the future until the case is settled.   Overtime lawsuits seek money damages for unpaid or underpaid wages in the past, present and until the lawsuit is settled.  Many class action lawsuits also seek liquidated damages, which are money damages beyond just the receiving the back pay for unpaid wages.

Class Action Overtime Pay Lawsuits are filed because the employer:

  • Misclassifies workers as independent contractors to avoid overtime pay, including construction workers, cable installers, janitors, utility workers, and other employees.
  • Misclassifies the job title of an employee to avoid paying overtime pay
  • Fails to pay for travel time between job assignments or work locations
  • Fails to pay for break time and lunch breaks
  • Fails to pay for pre-shift and post-shift work requirements and obligation, like booting up or shutting down a computer, putting on protective equipment, or otherwise preparing for a work day
  • Fails to pay for off-site work such as mandatory cell phone calls from clients after hours
  • Fails to properly calculate an employee’s rate of pay, especially those employees who receive commission wages or those who earn tips, like waiters, waitresses, servers, bellhops, and other service employees
  • Fails to pay salaried workers overtime pay wages for working more than 40 hours a week.

An overtime pay lawsuit for violations of the FLSA can be filed as a class action lawsuit or as an individual case for a single employee.  If a class action lawsuit has already been filed by another employee, you can either join that lawsuit or file your own individual lawsuit.   Every case is different and it may be in the workers best interest to be in a class action in certain cases but not in others.
