An “exempt” employee is one who does not have to be paid overtime. The complaint for this class action alleges that ZipRecruiter, Inc. and those who owned the company misclassified certain employees as exempt and did not pay them overtime as they were required to do by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

American Express Company has a long history: It was founded in 1850 and is one of only thirty companies from which the Dow Jones Industrial Average is derived. So how did they end up in a basic labor case? The complaint for this class action brings suit against them and against a company it claims that Amex partnered with for merchant services, Sales Partnerships, Inc.

It seems to be common for companies to misclassify workers as independent contractors to avoid paying overtime and other expenses they’re required to shoulder with regular workers. The complaint for this class action alleges that KRH, Inc. regularly requires some workers to put in more than forty hours per week on the oil and gas wells it services but does not pay them overtime for the work.

What are the criteria companies use for determining whether employees are exempt from overtime pay requirements or non-exempt? The complaint for this class action claims that Good Look, Ink and GLI LAX Holdings, LLC misclassified employees in an attempt to save money on overtime pay and in other areas. It alleges violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) as well as California labor laws.

Companies have tried any number of methods of insisting that workers are not in fact their employees. Why? Because regular employees have protections under laws like the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), while independent contractors do not. The complaint for this class action claims that Amazon.com, LLC and Amazon Logistics, Inc. avoid their responsibilities to delivery drivers by claiming they work for On the Go Express, LLC and not Amazon.

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), companies must pay employees overtime for all hours worked over forty each week, unless the workers are exempt from overtime pay under the law. The complaint for this class action alleges that Rockwater Energy Solutions, Inc. paid its oilfield workers a flat day rate and did not pay them overtime if they worked more than forty hours in a given week. It contends that these workers were regular employees and should have been paid overtime at one and a half times their normal hourly rate.

Lord & Taylor Shoe Department

Susannah Mulhearn worked in the Lord & Taylor Eastchester store in Scarsdale, New York, in the Ladies’ and Men’s Shoe Departments. The complaint claims that Lord & Taylor, LLC violated both the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and New York Labor Law (NYLL) on several counts relating to overtime pay, minimum wages, and commissions, as well as paying for all hours worked. 

Salad and Dressing from New University Deli in Plastic Containers

It seems that the eight-hour day our forebears supposedly established for workers still doesn’t cover low-paid workers in city restaurants. The complaint for this class action claims that the New University Deli paid flat weekly salaries and did not calculated overtime at the legally-required rates. The complaint also claims other violations of federal and state laws about minimum wages and the spread of hours, but these are related to the overtime claim.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was designed to protect workers from exploitation and abuse by employers. Plenty of employers, particularly at the lower end of the pay scale, are willing to try to force their workers to do unpaid labor (or improperly paid labor). The complaint for this class action alleges that General Workforce did not pay its workers proper overtime or, in some cases, any overtime at all. 

Handing Out Samples at Food Demo

Summit Retail Solutions, Inc. helps companies market their products, sometimes with in-store demonstrations, samples, or sales pitches by brand representatives. The complaint for this class action alleges that brand representatives were encouraged by the company’s pay structure to under-report their hours worked per week. They were therefore not paid for all hours worked and not paid overtime.
