Re: Potential Lawsuit for Unpaid Wages at Lendmark Financial Services
I represent employees in Georgia and across the country in lawsuits to reclaim unpaid wages from their employers. I am currently investigating reports of wage theft at Lendmark Financial Services locations (“Lendmark”) throughout the United States. If you were an employee at Lendmark during the last three years, you could be entitled to unpaid wages.
I have reason to believe that Lendmark does not pay its employees properly for all the hours its employees work. Specifically, I believe that Lendmark has failed to include certain bonus payments when calculating the overtime rates of their employees, resulting in unpaid overtime when employees worked more than 40 hours per week. Under federal law, employers are required to include non-discretionary bonuses in calculating employee overtime rates. When calculating overtime pay, section 7(e) of the FLSA provides that non-discretionary bonuses must be included in the regular rate of pay before the regular rate is multiplied by 1.5 to determine the correct overtime premium rate.
If you (1) worked at Lendmark within the last three years, (2) were eligible to receive overtime for hours worked over 40 per week (that is, you were “non-exempt” from federal overtime requirements), and (3) received non-discretionary bonuses that were not included in your regular rate for overtime purposes, you may not have received all of the compensation you were due.
If you would like to speak with an attorney about whether you would qualify to join other Lendmark employees in an action seeking to recover unpaid overtime wages, or if you have any other questions or concerns about your employment at Lendmark, please contact me directly at (877) 986-5529.
