Class Action Settlement – Short, et al. v. Churchill Benefit Corporation/Yurcor Daniel Short, et al. v. Churchill
Hourly employees are to be paid for every hour they work. Some employers violate this law by requiring that employees perform some of their duties “off the clock,” such as working at home, working during lunch, and working before or after the “official” start of the workday. Employers should always pay for training time and are often required to pay for travel time.
Hourly employees are also entitled to overtime pay for time worked in excess of 40 hours during a work-week. Employees who are paid a regular salary may be entitled to overtime wages if the employer inappropriately treats an employee as “exempt” from the FLSA and the WPCL.
If your employer does not pay you for all of the time you work, you may be entitled to additional wages, liquidated damages, and payment of attorneys’ fees. Partner Ed Feinstein has vigorously litigated FLSA and SPCL cases and would be pleased to talk to you about concerns you may have.
