Improper Calculation of Overtime Rates
It’s an old story: companies not paying employees proper overtime. But there are many different ways to do that. In this case, the complaint alleges (among other labor law violations) that Aldi, Inc and AI California, LLC did not take incentive pay into consideration when determining the overtime rate.
This class action is yet another alleging that an employer did not properly calculate or pay overtime for its hourly employees. This time, the employer is Target Corporation. The complaint alleges that the problem is both how the time-and-a-half overtime rate is calculated and the requirement that employees perform off-the-clock duties. It claims violations of both the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act (PMWA).
Johnson Controls Fire Protection, LP describes itself as the “world leader in security, fire protection, HVAC, building controls and energy storage.” That may be so, but are they the world leader in paying wages? The complaint for this class action claims that the company paid employees less than the prevailing wage for certain work in Washington state, in violation of state laws.
Fidelity Brokerage Services, LLC, Fidelity Investments, and FMR, LLC are paying out $1,200,000 to settle a collective and class action alleging that Fidelity did not properly calculate the rate of pay to apply to overtime hours for certain employees.
