Denver, Colorado Court Certifies FLSA Collective Action for Overtime Wages

Cases for unpaid wages are commonly filed in federal district court. In Green v. Drake Beam Morin Inc., Case No. 11-cv-01063 (D. Colorado December 6, 2011), the federal district court located in Denver, Colorado conditionally certified a collective action brought by employees for unpaid overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The workers alleged that the defendant set a predetermined number of hours for work and prohibited reporting of hours beyond that preset number of hours under threat of termination or reprisal. The employees further claimed that the employer failed to pay for work tasks such as preparation time, travel time and answering phone calls and responding to emails.

Denver Colorado Unpaid Overtime Lawyers

The Colorado district court permitted the FLSA case to move forward as a collective action based upon the employer's single decision, policy or plan to deny overtime compensation. The court noted that based upon the substantial allegations of the group of workers being the victims of a single plan that there were potential violations of the FLSA to which the employer was responsible. The court further noted that each worker seeking overtime wages must file a consent form with the court.

If you are an employee who has been refused overtime pay by your employer or were terminated and not properly paid overtime during your employment, you may have a claim for unpaid wages under the FLSA and Colorado wage and hour law.
