At Shellist Lazarz Slobin LLP, our team of experienced lawyers is committed to helping employees throughout the country defend their labor rights. That is why our law firm has filed a class action lawsuit against Huntleigh USA Corporation on behalf of certain airline employees who weren’t paid for meal breaks.
The lawsuit was brought forth as a collective action under overtime provisions contained in the Fair Labor Standards (FLSA). The lawsuit claims Huntleigh USA Corporation did not give air craft technicians bona fide meal break periods, and instead required and permitted them to work off-the-clock during their meal break periods. Employees were not paid for the time they worked during their meal break periods, and as a result, they were deprived of overtime compensation due to them under the FLSA.
The following classes of employees can partake in the lawsuit:
- FLSA Class: “Air craft technicians employed at HUC nationwide at any time during the three years before this Complaint was filed up to the present who, as a result of Defendant’s practice of automatically deducting a half hour from each shift worked and not paying for same, did not receive all of the overtime pay to which they were entitled under the FLSA in the weeks of their employment in which said air craft technicians worked more than forty (40) hours per week.”
- Rule 23 Class: “Air craft technicians employed at HUC at any time during the four years before this Complaint was filed up to the present who, as a result of Defendant’s practice of automatically deducting a half hour from each shift worked and not paying for same, did not receive all of the straight time pay at their contractual hourly rate to which they were entitled in the weeks of their employment in which said air craft technicians worked forty (40) or fewer hours per week.”
