MV Transportation, Inc. and MV Contract Transportation, Inc. are facing a proposed class and collective action filed by a former employee who claims he wasn’t paid properly for all his overtime hours. The plaintiff says he worked for the defendants as a driver, responsible for providing transportation services to elderly and disabled individuals. According to the complaint, the man was paid an hourly wage of $14.95 but never received time-and-a-half premium wages for the hours he worked in excess of 40 each week. He claims his normal schedule consisted of at least five 10-hour shifts per week and says he wasn’t paid for work he performed outside of these hours – including post-shift paperwork, meal breaks he worked through, and mandatory safety meetings. As a result, the case argues, the plaintiff was denied overtime pay in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York state law.
