Reynolds v. Axiom Global Inc.

Tuesday, October 25 - 2016

Stephan Zouras, LLP represents current and former Contract Reviewers for Axiom Global Inc., a/k/a Axiom Law who worked more than 40 hours per week without being paid an overtime premium of 1 ½ times their regular rate.   Plaintiffs, who were paid by the hour, allege they were misclassified as exempt because they were not paid a guaranteed salary.  If you worked at Axiom or any other companies, such as Robert Half Legal and want more information on your rights, please contact us.  To join the case, please CLICK HERE
All too often, employers try to take advantage of their employees by not properly compensating them for time worked in violation of federal and state law. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to pay employees 1 1/2 times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 each workweek unless they are properly classified as "exempt."  The law requires the employer to satisfy very strict requirements to properly classify an employee as an exempt professional, executive, administrator, intern or some other recognized category of exemption. Read here for more information on the new overtime laws effective 12/1/2016.
The FLSA also requires employers to keep accurate time records of all employees. Some employers try to skirt the law by paying only for "scheduled" time worked or paying based on an estimated or otherwise inaccurate time.  An employer’s failure to make and maintain accurate time records and paying for all time worked can have serious consequences.  In such cases, employees are eligible to seek damages in addition to all unpaid wages including double (or "liquidated") damages, back interest, attorney's fees and costs.
