Some employees come to us because their employer is not paying them overtime. We investigate their class action claim and find out in more details about all the issues involved.

In order to bring a collective action, workers should be under similar circumstances. Even when these workers perform other duties in different departments, they are entitled to collectively challenge any wrong practice that may be occurring in several departments to a number of employees.
There is a two-year limit for filing this type of lawsuit under the FLSA or three years in cases where the employer willfully violated the law. It’s best you contact an attorney that specializes in these matters to tell you whether or not it’s a good idea filing collectively. Sometimes it’s better you settle with your employer rather than involve more co-workers.
