Millwood, Inc. is the defendant in a proposed collective and class action that claims the company unlawfully rounds the start and end times of hourly workers’ shifts in its own favor, resulting in the employees not being paid proper minimum or time-and-a-half overtime wages. According to the lawsuit, the defendant, which manufactures and sells pallets, crates and other packaging and handling products, not only doctors employees’ start and end times, but also unlawfully deducts 20-minute breaks from compensable work time for shifts that last longer than six hours. As a result of the defendant’s alleged conduct, the plaintiff claims he and similarly situated collective members were not paid their agreed-upon hourly wages.
