Coil Manufacturer Hit With Wage Suit Alleging Unpaid OT
A producer of magnetic coils and transformers owes hourly paid workers millions of dollars in unpaid wages and overtime after automatically rounding employees’ time sheets to 40 hours, according to a proposed class and collective action in New York federal court.
In a complaint filed Friday, machine operator Deseria R. Griffin says that Endicott Coil Company Inc. rounded her time sheets to 40 hours regardless of the overtime work she performed before and after her scheduled shifts, in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New York Labor Law….
Brett Gallaway of McLaughlin & Stern LLP, who is representing Griffin, said Wednesday that he looks forward “to aggressively pursuing accountability against Endicott.”
“We believe that this matter is ripe for collective and class certification and that all employees of Endicott Coil have been deprived of significant amounts of uncompensated time for years,” Gallaway said. “This case will hopefully end this improper wage treatment and compensate these individuals for their unpaid efforts and contributions to the company’s success.” READ MORE
