In this case, four security guards for Madison Square Garden claim they should have been paid time and a half for their overtime according to state and federal laws. “These security guards were working multiple shifts or shifts and then other shows and some of them were working as much as 60 hours a week,” according to the lawsuit. Madison Square Garden paid $1.3 million to these four security guards along with three hundred others when the lawsuit became a class action suit.
The security guards earn a base pay of $30,000 and $40,000 a year and could get anywhere from few hundred dollars up to $75,000 once the settlement is approved by a federal judge.
