This case alleges that two debt collection agencies violated federal and state law by not paying time and a half for overtime worked and by requiring that employees clock out and continue to work.
The employees that are part of this lawsuit are debt collectors. Presumably, these employees work in a call center work environment and call consumers to collect on unpaid debt.
The complaint alleges several violations:
First, that debt collectors were required to work over 40 hours per week but were not paid time and a half for all overtime hours.
Second, that the owner or manager required that employees punch out and continue to work. This is often termed “off the clock” work.
Third, that the employer at times went into the time keeping system and changed employees hours worked.
The complaint alleges violation of federal law and Georgia law.
This is a garden variety wage and hour case. It alleges that two debt collection agencies failed to pay overtime to their call center employees.
