PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --
A class action and collective action lawsuit has been filed on
behalf of all Supervisors (Landscaping Supervisors, Work Order
Supervisors, Crew Supervisors, Irrigation Supervisors, etc.)
employed by The Brickman Group, Ltd., LLC. The lawsuit,
captioned Amador v. The Brickman Group, Ltd.,
LLC, No. 3:13-cv-02529 (M.D. Pa.), was filed in the United
States District Court for the Middle District of
Pennsylvania. The case is brought on behalf of all current
and former Supervisors employed by The Brickman Group anywhere
in the United States who were only paid half-time
overtime according to the "fluctuating work week" method of
compensation, whereby they receive only half-time overtime pay for
hours worked over 40 in a workweek, from October 8,
2010 through the present.
The case alleges that The Brickman Group violated the federal
Fair Labor Standards Act and Pennsylvania state wage laws
by paying overtime at only half-time, rather than at a rate of time
and one-half the required regular rate. "The Brickman Group appears
to be engaging in violations of the federal and state overtime
laws, and should be held accountable for failing to properly
compensate its Supervisors for hours worked over 40 in a workweek,"
said Shanon Carson of Berger & Montague, P.C., one of
the attorneys representing the plaintiff. Another attorney
for the plaintiff, C. Andrew Head of Fried & Bonder
LLC, stated, "It is important that this conduct be addressed by the
courts, so that a determination can be made that Brickman Group's
policy of paying only half-time overtime to all of its Supervisors
across the United States violates the law."
