DETAILS ABOUT THE PARTSBASE CASE – SHAWN MARTIN V. PARTSBASE INC. D/B/A GOVISTICS INC.
CASE: Shawn Martin v. Partsbase Inc. d/b/a Govistics Inc., United States District Court, Southern District of Florida, Case No: 9:20-cv-80235-DMM
The lawsuit, by Shawn Martin, seeks to recover for all present and former inside sales representatives, minimum wages for every hour that inside sales representatives worked in the prior 3 years to the present and continuing, plus an equal sum in liquidated damages. The lawsuit also seeks to recover for all present and former inside sales representatives, overtime wages for all hours worked at rates of time and one half the employees regular rates of pay (which must include the value of all commissions earned).
The lawsuit alleges a plan and scheme by Partsbase and Govgistics to evade and avoid paying the FLSA required overtime wages to all inside sales representatives working for the company in the preceding 3 years to the present. The lawsuit alleges that the Company had a De Facto policy against inside sales representatives reporting all overtime hours, and a policy and practice of permitting employees to suffer to work off the clock for overtime hours, both of which would be unlawful. The lawsuit seeks to recover an equal sum in overtime wages as liquidated damages, plus attorney’s fees and costs.
The lawsuit alleges that Partsbase and Govgistics did not permit inside sales representatives the right to keep their base wages of hourly pay, “free and clear” as required by the FLSA, and instead treated these wages as a draw (loan) against future commissions, in violation of the FLSA.
Finally, the class action lawsuit seeks to recover for all present and former inside sales representatives, the base hourly wages promised and agreed to be paid by Partsbase and Govgistics pursuant to claims of violation of Florida’s Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, Conversion, and Unjust Enrichment.
Retaliation against current and former employees for asserting claims formally or informally, or participating in any class action or collective action for wages is a violation of the FLSA.
