Tuesday, August 02 - 2016

Stephan Zouras, LLP currently represents Customer Engineers “CEs” who have joined the fight to recover unpaid wages and overtime pay.  In the lawsuit, Plaintiffs claim that NCR failed to pay them for time spent before their scheduled shifts receiving work assignments, checking routes, loading and unloading their vehicles, providing ETA’s, pre-calling customers and driving to their first job of the day.  Stephan Zouras, LLP has represented over a thousand CEs nationwide and has negotiated favorably on their behalf recovering more in weekly unpaid wages than any other settlement with the company.  If you work or worked for NCR and would like more information on your rights, contact us or to join the case 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.
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.
