We have handled Tennessee overtime wage cases and overtime case across the country for years. One thing I have learned is that these cases aren’t limited to a certain type of business nor size of business. We see violations from small local restaurants to fortune 500 companies. I will say that Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) violations from big corporations use to surprise me but no longer. I guess they make these big profits but cutting costs everywhere, included their employee’s wages. It is unfortunate but to often it is a reality.
Recently a lawsuit was filed against HP for failing to pay overtime. The lawsuit alleges that HP misclassified some workers as management and paid them salary instead of hourly. This allowed them to work the employees without paying overtime pay. It will be interesting to see how this lawsuit develops.
