A group of landscapers suing their employer for overtime pay have settled their class action lawsuit for roughly $4.8 million.
The landscapers claimed that their employer failed to pay overtime to its full-time, salaried supervisors because it paid only half-time overtime pay on a fluctuating workweek basis.
The settlement covers 839 workers who were paid by the company and performed work in Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington or Wisconsin between Oct. 8, 2010, and June 8, 2014.
It covers employees who were paid a salary and were also eligible for half-time overtime fluctuating workweek pay.
Overtime pay is required for most Florida jobs. Unfortunately, many employers try and cheat their employees out of the pay to which they are legally entitled to receive. Even salaried employees may be able to collect overtime pay, it really all depends on if their titles do not match with federally defined duties they perform.
