$3.25 Million Settlement – Marketsource

Feldman Legal Group and attorney Mitchell Feldman reached a settlement with Marketsource Inc. and American Honda Motor Company Inc. to settle the nationwide wage claims of “AHM Zone Recall Specialists” and “District Recall Coordinators”, including variations in the titles such as Recall Coordinator, and Recall Specialist for the gross sum of $3,250,000.00.

CASE: Christie Tarsa and Sarah Trattner, individually, and on behalf of all others similarly situated v. Marketsource Inc. Case No. 1:19-cv-02684-WMR in the United States District Court, Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division.

The lawsuit alleges that Marketsource has willfully, and unlawfully misclassified Honda Recall Specialists as exempt from overtime wages under the FLSA, and knew or should have known that the position does not meet or satisfy any Exemption under the FLSA from their obligation to pay a premium to workers for all hours worked over 40 in a in each and every work week.

There are very few exemptions under the FLSA for an employer to be excused from its duty and obligation to pay employees for overtime hours worked. Further, its not the duty and requirement of the Employee to document the hours in order to be entitled to be paid for the hours worked.

The FLSA also makes it unlawful to retaliate or discriminate against any person or employee who makes a claim for overtime wages, including participating in any class or collective action to recover overtime wages.
