The grass is not always greener on the other lawn and in fact sometimes it hides dirty secrets underneath.
Our firm is investigating employee complaints from former Scott’s LawnService workers who allege that they were not paid time-and-a-half for overtime when they worked more than 40 hours a week.
Former lawn service technicians paid using the fluctuating workweek pay method claim that they received commissions or bonuses from the company and when they worked more than 40 hours a week they allege that Scott’s did not compensate them with correct overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Are you a lawn care technician paid bonuses and commissions on the fluctuating workweek system?
The Fair Labor Standards Act states that bonuses, shift differential, commissions and/or other incentive pay should be included in all hours worked when calculating your overtime rate.
Also, there are certain requirements in order to apply the fluctuating work week method correctly and many employers often get this wrong. When employers fail to follow the law employees can file a wage and overtime claim to recover back wages owed under the law.
Who may be affected?
All current and former employees of Scott’s LawnService could be affected by these alleged wage and hour violations.
You may be affected by alleged unfair pay practices if you:
- Are a current or former employee of Scotts LawnService in the past three years;
- Were paid using the fluctuating workweek pay method.
