Unpaid Overtime Class Actions

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), any nonexempt employee that works more than 40 hours in a work week should be paid overtime at a rate that is one and a half times their normal pay rate. The FMLA does not necessarily require overtime pay for work on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, or regular days of rest. Although these laws are clear, they are often violated by employers, both intentionally and unintentionally. As a result, employees who work overtime are often times not paid correctly. It is illegal for an employer to deny overtime pay for hours worked if the employee is a non-exempt employee.

Certain employees, such as lawyers, architects, certain managers, certain sales employees, and doctors, may not be entitled to overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act. These employees typically receive a salary and may be exempt.Another way an employer may attempt to avoid paying overtime is by misclassifying an employee’s job, which is illegal.

Class Actions and Collection Actions vs. Single Plaintiff Lawsuit

Class actions can be an effective way of forcing change on an employer who is engaging in illegal, discriminatory, or abusive practices. An unpaid overtime class action lawsuit is filed by a group of employees who have experienced the same or similar discrimination or misconduct from their employer. Unlike a class action, a single action suit involves one employee against his or her employers. A single plaintiff or private lawsuit involves only one plaintiff, not a group of plaintiffs.
