Case Update: September 2015
Employees of New Orleans Cold Storage filed a lawsuit against the company for its failure to pay overtime. The employees were paid on a piece rate system without regard for overtime hoursworked. The company has now changed its pay practices. This matter is currently in the discovery stage, meaning information is being exchanged in order to investigate the employees' claims.
Kennedy Hodges L.L.P. has obtained pay records for most of the employees it represents and is in the process of calculating the overtime owed. Piece rates are often illegal forms of pay. If you have been paid on a piece rate within the last three years, please give us a call at 1-877-342-2020.
