Group of Employees Suffering Unpaid Overtime from Pittsfield, Berkshire County
In 2017, Attorney Steffans represented a group of transportation employees who were not paid overtime. The employer in this case paid the employees the regular hourly wage for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek, instead of time-and-a-half. This type of payment structure was consistent with federal law, but violated Massachusetts state law. Attorney Steffans originally represented one employee in this case. By the end of the case, he was representing 19. The case quickly settled for a significant sum that the employer insist be kept confidential.
