Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl Representing Former Insight Global Employees in Class Action Lawsuit Over Unpaid Overtime
Online PR News – 21-March-2019 – Baltimore, Maryland – On Friday, March 15, 2019, former employees (Plaintiffs) of Insight Global, LLC ("Insight Global") filed a class and collective action lawsuit (Case No. :19-cv-00801-ELH) against the company to recover unpaid overtime wages. Insight Global is a national staffing agency that specializes in finding job candidates for its clients. Insight Global employs Recruiters to find potential job candidates aligned with a client's specific requirements.
Plaintiffs brought their case on behalf of themselves and other Recruiters who work or worked for Insight Global. Plaintiffs allege that Insight Global violated the wage and hour provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") by intentionally misclassifying its Recruiters as salaried, rather than hourly, employees. As a result, Plaintiffs claim that they and other Recruiters were denied overtime wages. Plaintiffs allege that the type of work that they and other 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, "when employees staffed in administrative roles lack any real discretion in the performance of their tasks, they could well be entitled to overtime wages."
According to the Complaint, Plaintiffs and other Recruiters did not have any real decision-making authority. Their tasks simply consisted of screening potential candidates that possessed the requisite credentials required by Insight Global's clients.
