Did you work for Fleetcor Technologies Operating Company or Fleetcor Technologies Inc. at some point during the past few years? Those who held inside sales representative positions and similar positions at these companies may be eligible to join a collective action case seeking to recover unpaid overtime wages.
This class-action lawsuit aims to recover compensation for overtime wages that the companies failed to pay or underpaid for those working in positions with duties similar to inside sales representatives. This lawsuit alleges that this practice represents a wage violation of the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act).
Through the lawsuit, we are alleging that the Fleetcor Technologies companies failed to pay overtime wages to certain employees who held jobs related to inside sales. Those who meet these criteria and who worked for Fleetcor in the period from December 2018 to December 2021 may be eligible to join the lawsuit.
We believe these employees deserve to recover damages, including unpaid or underpaid overtime wages at 1.5 times the employee’s regular rate, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees and costs, and other damages.
DETAILS ABOUT FLEETCOR’S FAILURE TO PAY OVERTIME WAGES
CASE: Jaan Marion, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, v. Fleetcor Technologies Operating Company LLC and Fleetcor Technologies Inc., violation of Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime wage laws.
Our lawsuit alleges that Fleetcor failed to pay required overtime wages or underpaid overtime wages to affected employees working in jobs related to inside sales since December 2018.
These Fleetcor Technologies companies used certain job titles to attempt to classify employees as being ineligible for overtime pay or as being ineligible for extra pay as part of overtime hours. However, as defined in the FLSA, we allege the employees who worked in inside sales representative positions should have been non-exempt, hourly-paid employees, making them eligible for overtime pay.
Some of the affected job titles, which the company used to refer to the employees or that the employees used to describe themselves, include:
Regional Account Manager
National Sales Account Manager
Outbound Sales Rep
Business Sales Consultant
Regional Account Executive
Senior Sales Fleet Management Consultant
Fuel and Business Expense Management Consultant
Elite Sales Rep
Customer Success Manager
At Feldman Legal Group, we have represented employees at companies including Verizon Connect, Total Insurance Brokers, Strada Services, Fleetmatics, N3 Results, Managed Labor Solutions, Sage Software, Partsbase, Discrete Wireless d/b/a Nextraq, Granite Telecom, and others in similar FLSA collective actions.
The accusations against these companies state that they cheated their employees out of the overtime wages they earned, violating the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and state wages laws. The FLSA says non-exempt employees must receive a premium in payment for hours worked beyond the standard 40-hour week (i.e., overtime hours).
Some companies mislead their employees regarding FLSA by discouraging reporting of overtime and by misclassifying the employees as exempt from overtime payment, which is the type of violation we are alleging against Fleetcor with this lawsuit.
We have brought lawsuits on behalf of employees in other Fleetcor companies over the past six years for similar wage violations, including in the following cases:
Jones and Bridgeforth v. Fleetcor
Green v. Fleetcor
Mitchev and Sellers v. Fleetcor Operating Company LLC
Miller v. Fleetcor
Joshua Walker v. Fleetcor Operating Company LLC, et al
Taylor v. Fleetcor Technologies Operating Company, LLC
Hill v. Fleetcor Technologies Operating Company, LLC
Morrison v. Fleetcor Technologies Operating Company, LLC (pending)
