Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation, a contractor of the Department of Defense, is facing a proposed class action lawsuit filed on behalf of operators who work in its “Persistent Ground Surveillance Towers.” According to the suit, Navmar provides “engineering and technical services,” including the operation of surveillance towers that scan for unauthorized aircraft. The plaintiff was allegedly employed by Navmar as an operator, responsible for manually scanning the airspace around the towers using cameras and radar. He claims he often worked more than 40 hours in a week, but was not properly compensated with overtime wages for the hours worked above 40. He further alleges that Navmar “intentionally and repeatedly misrepresented” to its employees their true non-exempt status under the Fair Labor Standards Act in order to avoid properly compensating them.
