(Apex) filed a class and collective action lawsuit (Complaint # 1:19-cv-00006-BPG) against the company to recover unpaid overtime wages. Apex is staffing agency that centers on providing potential job candidates to their clients across the United States.
Plaintiffs worked as Technical Recruiters for Apex. Plaintiffs brought their case on behalf of themselves and other Technical Recruiters who work or worked for Apex. Plaintiffs allege that Apex violated the wage and hour provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) by intentionally misclassifying its Technical Recruiters as salaried, rather than hourly, employees. As a result, Plaintiffs claim that they and other Technical Recruiters were denied overtime wages. Plaintiffs allege that the type of work that they and other Technical Recruiters performed did not exempt them from the overtime requirements.
Plaintiffs' attorney Benjamin L. Davis, III of The Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl explains, "Because of the type of work they actually performed, Plaintiffs and other similarly situated Technical Recruiters should have received overtime pay for working over 40 hours a week."
