Overtime Class Action Lawsuits
Class Action Lawsuits, Investigations for Workers Denied Overtime
According to federal overtime law, most workers are entitled to receive time-and-a-half pay for every hour worked over 40 in a single workweek. A number of recent overtime class action lawsuits have alleged, however, that employers are not properly compensating their employees for time worked. Common wage and hour abuses alleged in these unpaid overtime lawsuits include the improper classification of workers as ineligible for overtime pay, the failure to properly count an employee's total hours worked, and "off the clock" work, in which an employee performs job-related tasks outside of their scheduled shift without having this work counted as compensable time.
When an employer violates federal or state overtime laws, affected workers may be able to file a claim to recover up to twice the amount of wages originally owed to them, dating back two or three years. There is a time limit for filing overtime class action lawsuits, however, so employees who were denied overtime pay are encouraged to seek legal help as soon as possible.
