Former drivers of a Nevada-based limousine company have been awarded $3.85 million in a class-action lawsuit by a U.S. District Court judge, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The suit alleges time and attendance and other violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act, which establishes basic guidelines for companies with regard to employee time compensation that cannot be modified or altered.
The complaint was initially filed by 13 drivers who are no longer employed, and outlined a number of different indiscretions on the part of the company. Some of these include not meeting minimum wage requirements, failure to compensate for overtime worked and non-payment of money that was due once an employee ended his or her employment.
The company operates four separate car services throughout the State of Nevada. In addition to the 13 original plaintiffs, any other drivers who wish to opt out or take part in the class-action litigation have to either make a claim or waive their right to one by April 21.
The suit affects any drivers who were employed in any division of the company between Dec. 18, 2005 and Jan. 1, 2011.
