Prime Communications, LP is on the receiving end of a lawsuit filed by a former store manager who claims he was deprived of proper wages for overtime work.
The suit says the plaintiff was hired by the defendant in Monroe, Louisiana and later relocated to the company’s Little Rock, Arkansas location. According to the case, the man and other store managers received non-discretionary performance bonuses that were improperly excluded from their regular rates of pay in the defendant’s overtime calculations. Consequently, the suit argues, the plaintiff was not paid at the appropriate time-and-a-half overtime rate.
The plaintiff further claims he was not compensated for all hours worked, as he was allegedly directed to not log more than 47.5 hours each week despite regularly putting in 50 to 55 hours or more.
