Case Update: November 1, 2011
Technical Support Employees in Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, and Texas have Kennedy Hodges LLP represent their wage claim against Konica Minolta.
Our firm filed a complaint on behalf of current and former technical support employees (including Customer Technicians, Customer Specialists, and others) against Konica Minolta business solutions USA, Inc. Since we filed in August 2010, Kennedy Hodges has actively been representing our clients.
Nature of the violation
The complaint states that Konica required and permitted employees to work over 40 hours a week, but did not compensate employees at their overtime rate, a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Konica's technical support workers perform maintenance and repair work on digital and mechanical products sold by Konica. As part of its company policy Konica also requires its technical support workers to attend online training sessions.
Who is affected?
This active case is a collective action to recover unpaid overtime compensation owed to former employees and on behalf of all other similarly situated employees, current and former.
