A proposed wage and hour class action filed in June 2018 against T-Mobile retailer Wireless Vision, LLC has been transferred to New York district court.
The complaint says the plaintiff was employed by Wireless Vision between August 2017 and April 2018 and worked as a customer service representative before moving into a role as an interim store manager. The man alleges that in addition to requiring employees to work upward of 40 hours per week without proper overtime pay, the defendant employed a policy of deducting 30-minute “lunch breaks” from workers’ timesheets regardless of whether an employee actually took a meal break. Further still, the plaintiff claims that when he worked past his regularly scheduled shift end time, the defendant manually removed the additional time from his timesheet.
The plaintiff goes on to allege Wireless Vision required employees to wear shirts bearing the T-Mobile logo yet failed to reimburse proposed class members for washing, laundering or otherwise maintaining these work uniforms.
The lawsuit looks to cover those who worked for Wireless Vision as customer service reps, assistant store managers, and store managers nationwide at any time between May 2012 through the present.
