Overtime Lawsuit Filed For Tow Truck Operators

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. –Tow truck drivers are often cheated out of required overtime pay by the towing companies. The truck operators often put in more than forty hours in a work week and are not compensated with required overtime pay wages. Many times, a company will misclassify the drivers as independent contractors to avoid paying the proper wages. In these situations, the tow truck operators can file an unpaid overtime lawsuit.

An unpaid tow truck operator overtime lawsuit was recently filed in a federal court in Alabama. In Ingram, et. al. v. Wesley G. Passmore and Passmore Towing & Recovery, No 14-0004-AKK, District Court Judge Abdul K. Kallon granted Plaintiffs’ motion seeking conditional certification under the Fair Labor Standards Act, 29 U.S.C. § 216(b). Violation of the federal laws allows the workers to seek compensation for the unpaid overtime and attorney’s fees.

The Plantiffs, who are tow-truck operators, claim that Passmore misclassified them as independent contractors and refused to pay them the minimum and overtime wages they earned.
