U.S. Security Associates Hit with Lawsuit Over FLSA Violations

A collective action filed in Tennessee claims defendant U.S. Security Associates, Inc. failed to compensate employees for off-the-clock work. Filed by a former security guard who worked for the defendant until January 2017, the lawsuit claims the plaintiff “regularly and repeatedly” worked off the clock for no pay. According to the complaint, the plaintiff and similarly situated workers were required to manually keep track of their hours. The workers, however, “were not permitted to record the actual time they arrived to work and left work,” the lawsuit says. Instead, security guards were required to only write down the scheduled start time of their shifts, not when they actually arrived at work and began working.

“In reality, [the defendant] instructs its employees to arrive to work 15 to 20 minutes before the start of their schedule shift to engage in ‘shift change’ procedures,” the case claims.
