Our experienced unpaid Overtime Lawyers filed a collective and class action lawsuit against HyperSport Industries aka HyperSport Automotive (“HyperSport”), for failing to compensate its hourly employees for all overtime hours worked.
On February 9, 2022, the law firm of Coffman Legal, LLC filed a Collective and Class Action Complaint against Defendant HyperSport on behalf of hourly employees for the alleged failure of HyperSport to compensate its hourly employees for all overtime wages in violation of the Fair Labor Standard Act (“FLSA”).
The Complaint alleges that HyperSport modifies employees’ time records to reduce employees’ hours worked. The reduction of recorded hours worked results in unpaid wages, including unpaid overtime wages. The FLSA requires an employer to pay employees for their work suffered or permitted. Employers are not permitted to modify employees’ time worked simply to reduce wages and overtime. Such conduct is a blatant and willful violation of federal and state wage and hour laws, including the respective overtime laws.
This lawsuit provides an example of various ways in which an employer like HyperSport may underpay its employees in violation of the FLSA. This unpaid overtime adds up over the course of weeks and years. The FLSA sets forth the minimum compensation employees must be paid, including overtime pay, and non-exempt hourly employees are entitled to receive full and proper compensation under the FLSA.
The lawsuit seeks unpaid overtime wages since February 9, 2019, liquidated damages in an amount equal to the unpaid overtime, attorney’s fees, and costs, among other things. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, Eastern Division (Columbus), and is titled Jackson v. HyperSport Industries, LLC; Case No. 2:22-cv-537.
