Peter T. Nicholl Law Offices Reaches $60,000 Settlement of Overtime Class Action Against the Cruise Web, Inc.

Posted on behalf of Peter T. Nicholl in Unpaid Overtime Sep 04, 2019

cruise shipOur firm reached a settlement on behalf of employees at The Cruise Web, Inc. in a class action lawsuit over non-payment of overtime wages and minimum wage law violations.

The settlement agreement was for a total of $60,000 for unpaid wages, liquidated damages and attorneys’ fees.

Our team worked on behalf of several of The Cruise Web, Inc. employees who filed suit on September 21, 2017.

The plaintiffs were hired as consultants on a commission-based payment plan. For the first six months of their employment, the Cruise Web, Inc. consultants were in a training period in which they received a standard amount of wages, regardless of sales.

However, their contract outlined that if they exceeded their sales quotas, they were to receive a percentage of “all net agency commissions” at the end of their training period, which plaintiffs contend did not happen.

The plaintiffs also argued that the company’s strict policy of requiring consultants to follow up with leads within a 24-hour window or possibly face repercussions, resulted in them working outside of their scheduled hours and through their breaks, violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and the Maryland Wage and Hour Law (MWHL).
