Baron and Budd, the national plaintiffs’ law firm, recently announced that it is looking into cases of alleged overtime violations at various Alorica call center locations across the country. These violations pertain to wage deductions carried out by the company for employee breaks; there’s a strong possibility that these violations could sum up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid overtime payments to employees of Alorica.
In a statement, Allen Vaught, head of Baron and Budd’s overtime pay violations practice area, said that, “What Alorica is doing is against the law. The worst part is that many people probably don’t realize that they are being cheated out of lawful pay.”
According to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), deductions from an employee’s pay can be carried out only when that employee takes a break exceeding 20 minutes. In the case of Alorica Call Centers, there’s a strong possibility that the company forced breaks on its employees by logging them out of their system. The employees however, were not paid for the log out time which also includes short breaks to the restroom – less than the stipulated 20 minutes.
Each of these small time deductions thus could result in substantial reductions in pay at the end of the employee’s pay period.
Attorney Allen Vaught can be contacted via phone at 1.866.495.1255 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on these alleged Alorica wage violations.
In keeping with federal laws, all calls and information passed on will be kept confidential.
