Tennessee employees and employees all across the country work hard for their pay and they deserve to be paid properly for the hours they work. However, many companies mis-classify their employees so that they are exempt from overtime pay and fail to pay them the overtime they are entitled to for working more than forty hours in a single work week. According to this lawsuit, computer technicians that worked as contractors for the Goldman Sachs Group claim that they are entitled to overtime pay because they worked more than forty hours a week. They claim they worked more than seventy hours a week and that more than one hundred employees were underpaid as a result. They filed a complaint in May of 2010.
The Goldman Sachs Group has agreed to pay $993,831 to settle the lawsuit brought by the computer technicians. According to the filing of the settlement, forty-one computer technicians returned claim forms.
Also according to the filing, “The parties reached the settlement agreement after an arm’s-length mediation held in March 2011.” The Goldman Sachs spokesman declined to comment on the settlement.
