C.R. England Wage Violations
Protecting the Rights of Employees Facing Minimum Wage Violations
C.R. England is facing yet another lawsuit for violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). In May 2016, the long haul over-the-road company faced a lawsuit concerning misleading claims that trainees were guaranteed a job if they enrolled in the company’s for-profit training school, Premier. Employees were basically paying to train for a job they later discovered wasn’t as accessible as they were promised.
Some C.R. England drivers claim that they are being paid less than they are due under state and federal minimum wage laws. If you drive for C.R. England and believe you have been denied your fair pay, we want to hear from you.
C.R. England failed to ensure its drivers were being paid minimum wage for every hour they worked. As a result of their negligence, the company is facing several claims for FLSA wage and recordkeeping violations. As such, Shellist Lazarz Slobin LLP is investigating claims for over-the-road truck driver employees of C.R. England, Inc. who believe they were paid less than the federal minimum wage. Employees who are not eligible for overtime pay are still entitled to federal and state minimum wage.

Federal Minimum Wage Facts
The federal minimum wage for covered nonexempt employees is $7.25 per hour; this is also Texas’ minimum wage rate. If employees are accurately claiming their 14-to-28 cent pay per mile, then their pay is falling far below the legal state and federal minimum wage, requiring immediate legal action. Our attorneys are examining this situation closely and can advocate for any employee who is a victim of C.R. England’s illegal actions.
Federal Minimum Wage Violations & Actions
The US Department of Labor states that “Employers who willfully or repeatedly violate the minimum wage or overtime pay requirements are subject to a civil money penalty of up to $1000 for each violation.” As such, C.R. England employees can argue that the company both willfully and repeatedly violated the legal pay requirements.
Some remedies include requiring the employer to make up the difference between what the employee was paid and what they should’ve been paid, also referred to as “back pay.” Further, we can help file a lawsuit against C.R. England to recover compensation for wage violations and damages.
