Tennessee workers and workers all across the United States work to support their families and their loved ones every day. Some people even work overtime so that they can make sure all the bills get paid or that there is enough food on the table. By law, when an employee works more than forty hours in one week, their employer is required to pay them time and a half for any overtime they work, unless they fall into a category that is exempt from this regulation. However, many companies find ways around this law and fail to pay their employees overtime. If you or someone you know has worked overtime hours but not received overtime pay, then you should talk with a Tennessee employment overtime pay lawyer. They will work with you and see that you get the compensation you deserve.
In this case, a federal court found in favor of the Quicken loan company in a lawsuit claiming that the company owed overtime pay back to former Quicken loan employees. The jury decided that the almost four hundred former Quicken employees seeking overtime were not just salespeople but also had additional responsibilities and this makes them ineligible for overtime pay. If the jury had found the employees just be salespeople than they would have qualified for the overtime pay according to federal law. The employees will receive nothing as a result of this verdict.
The attorney representing the former Quicken employees stated he would appeal certain parts of the verdict. He also states that his firm is still working on three other Quicken Loan overtime cases that are pending. These cases include more than one thousand workers.
