Our firm filed a lawsuit against Groendyke Transport on behalf of a group of employees who worked as Logistics Coordinators for Groendyke Transport. The lawsuit claims Groendyke paid its Logistics Coordinators a salary and thus did not pay Logistics Coordinators any overtime wage premium for hours worked over forty hours each week as required by the Fair Labor Standards Act. The Fair Labor Standards Act is a federal law that requires employers to pay certain employees overtime wages for any hours worked over forty in a week.
The lawsuit alleges Groendyke paid its Logistics Coordinators a salary for all hours worked, including hours worked over forty in a week, and thus Groendyke failed to pay its Logistics Coordinators the required overtime wage premium for hours over forty (40) hours each week. The lawsuit is brought as a collective action on behalf of Logistics Coordinators who worked for Groendyke nationwide who were paid a salary and not paid the required overtime wage premium for working more than forty (40) hours a week in the past three years.
