Christine Tarsa and Sarah Trattner v. Marketsource Inc., Case No.:1:19-cv-02684-WMR, pending in the United States District Court Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division.
Nationwide Collective Action Overtime Lawsuit
Feldman Legal Group announces the filing of a nationwide collective action overtime wage lawsuit pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) on behalf of all present and formerly employed Honda Recall Specialists working for Marketsource Inc. and Allegis Group.
The Details of the Marketsource Case
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.
Damages Our Legal Complaint Seeks
The lawsuit seeks to recover on behalf of all present employees and all persons formerly employed in this position of Honda Recall Specialist in the preceding 3 years, overtime wages for all hours not paid for, plus an equal sum in liquidated damages, as well as attorney’s fees and costs of the action. The FLSA provide only for a prevailing plaintiff to recover attorney’s fees, not a prevailing Defendant.
