Peter T. Nicholl Law Offices Files Unpaid Overtime Lawsuit on Behalf of Safelite Workers

Posted on behalf of Peter T. Nicholl in Unpaid Overtime Apr 10, 2019

working on windshieldOn July 31, 2017, our firm filed a Complaint against Safelite Group, Inc. (Safelite). The Complaint alleges that Safelite unlawfully denied overtime payments to its Technicians. Plaintiffs filed their Complaint on behalf of themselves and other “similarly situated” Technicians who worked in this position at any time within the three (3) years prior to July 2017.

Plaintiffs’ and other Technicians’ duties ranged from the full removal of windshields and windows to routine repairs and maintenance. They were paid an hourly rate as well as commissions.

The Complaint alleges that Safelite implemented an illegal policy throughout the entire Mid-Atlantic region, including Maryland, Delaware and Virginia. Regardless of how many hours Safelite’s Technicians worked each week, they were instructed to only report 40 hours or less.   Consequently, Safelite failed to pay its Technicians proper overtime (“time-and-a-half”) wages. Plaintiffs allege that this was a direct violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Our firm seeks to recover unpaid overtime wages and liquidated (double) damages for all of these employees.

If you worked for Safelite as a Technician or performed similar job duties between July 31, 2014 and the present and were not paid proper overtime wages, you may have a claim.
