Former recreation director sues for unpaid overtime

views: 4126

An ex-New Jersey recreational worker is suing her former employer for time and attendance violations related to unpaid overtime. According to local publication The Express-Times, the worker was hired in September 2012 as a recreation director, a position that only offered part-time hours.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff was instructed by her direct supervisor to complete time sheets reflecting only part time hours, in this case, 20 per week. However, she was still asked to log the actual number of hours worked. The former employee states that in the summer she would often work as many as 60 hours per week that went unpaid.

A year into her employment, the U.S. Department of Labor conducted an investigation and determined that the plaintiff was owed 647 hours of regular hourly pay and 155 hours of overtime compensation, which has already been paid out.

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the defendant was guilty of violating minimum wage laws due to the number of hours the plaintiff worked, juxtaposed against what she was actually paid, and the fact that her employment status qualified her to receive overtime compensation.
