On February 4, 2020, former employees (“Plaintiffs”) of DSV Air & Sea, Inc (“DSV”) filed a Complaint (Case No.: 2:20-cv-01204, U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey ) against their former employer, alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standard Act (“FLSA”). Plaintiffs are represented by the Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl, Nichols Kaster, PLLP and Schall & Barasch, LLC, whose office is in Moorestown, New Jersey. The Complaint alleges that Ocean Import Agents, Ocean Export Agents, Air Import Agents, Air Export Agents and/or Customer Service Agents (collectively, “logistics agents”) were not properly compensated for their overtime hours worked. Plaintiffs filed their Complaint on behalf of themselves and all other salaried logistics agents who work or worked for DSV at any point within the last three (3) years.
The Complaint further alleges that DSV improperly misclassified all of their agents as salaried employees, despite the fact they did not satisfy any of the exemptions under the FLSA. Plaintiffs are seeking to recover unpaid overtime wages for each week that Plaintiffs and other agents worked over forty (40) hours. Plaintiffs also seeks to recover liquidated (double) damages and other statutorily-permitted relief.
If you work or worked as a salaried logistics agent at any point between February 2017 and the present and were not paid overtime wages, you may have a potential claim. Because this is a proposed collective action, the court will later decide whether the case may proceed as a group (or “collective”) and whether you remain eligible to stay in the case. Further, the court has not yet determined whether DSV violated the law. To learn more about this case, please contact us.
