Type of Case: Unlawful Deductions, Overtime Pay Violations, Minimum Wage Violations
Settlement Amount: $1,800,000.00
In a significant legal case, a national media researcher has reached a $1,800,000.00 settlement in response to allegations that employees were forced to pay check cashing fees, denied overtime pay, and denied minimum wage.
The case involved allegations that the media researcher unlawfully required employees to pay check cashing fees, constituting an unauthorized deduction from their wages. This practice is not only a violation of employment laws but also places a financial burden on the affected employees.
Overtime Pay Violations:
Additionally, the company faced accusations of violating overtime pay regulations by denying eligible employees the compensation they were entitled to for working beyond regular hours. Overtime pay violations are a breach of labor laws designed to ensure fair compensation for employees who put in additional work hours.
Minimum Wage Violations:
Furthermore, the case included allegations of the company denying employees the mandated minimum wage. This violation raises serious concerns about fair pay practices and adherence to labor standards.
