Allied Universal and Universal Protection Service, LLC have been hit with a proposed class and collective lawsuit out of federal court in Pennsylvania alleging the defendants broke the Fair Labor Standards Act and several state laws. The suit was filed on behalf of hourly-paid security guards and site supervisors – who were also in charge of security services – claiming they were not paid properly for their overtime hours. The plaintiff says he worked five to six days per week, with occasional shifts lasting up 12 hours on “busy days” and days where other guards or supervisors didn’t show up for work, all without proper time-and-a-half pay.
