Peter T. Nicholl Law Offices Representing Student Employee at Stevenson University in Wage Lawsuit

Posted on behalf of Peter T. Nicholl in Unpaid Overtime Apr 22, 2019

lacrosse player on fieldOn April 19, 2019, our firm filed a Complaint against Stevenson University, Inc. (“Stevenson”) alleging that Stevenson unfairly compensated its student employees by denying them the correct minimum and overtime wage payments. It is alleged that Stevenson only permitted its student employees to record a capped number hours of work per week, regardless of how many hours they actually worked. This led to a substantial amount of unpaid “off-the-clock” work performed by Plaintiff and other student employees.

The Complaint alleges that this was a university-wide practice that was applicable to all graduate and undergraduate student employees who worked in the athletic department and/or held administrative positions.

Plaintiff worked as a receptionist for the university and as a Graduate Assistant for Stevenson’s lacrosse team. Plaintiff filed her Complaint on behalf of herself and other student employees who worked at Stevenson within the past three (3) years and were subject to the policy described above.

Based on the violations alleged in the Complaint, our firm seeks to recover unpaid minimum and overtime wages, treble (triple) damages and other statutorily-permitted relief for Plaintiff and all other student employees who experienced similar harms.

If you worked as a Receptionist, Graduate Assistant, Team Manager, Assistant Coach, or in another student position between April 2016 and the present, you may have a potential claim.
