Paylocity Corporation Employees File Complaint for Unpaid Overtime Hours
07/16/2019

Paylocity Consultants who have worked for the corporation within the last three years have filed a lawsuit against alleged failure to pay overtime wages.

Online PR News – 16-July-2019 – Schaumburg, IL – On July 12, 2019, former employees (Plaintiffs) of Paylocity Corporation filed a class and collective action lawsuit (1:19-cv-04716) against the company to recover unpaid overtime wages. Paylocity Corporation ("Paylocity") is an online payroll company headquartered in Schaumburg, Ilinois.

Plaintiffs all worked as Implementation Consultants for Paylocity and were all paid a salary. Plaintiffs allege that Paylocity violated the wage and hour provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) by intentionally misclassifying them as salaried employees and as a result, were denied overtime wages. Plaintiffs allege that they routinely worked more than (50) hours per week without receiving "time-and-a-half" their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over forty (40) in a workweek.

Plaintiffs' attorney Benjamin L. Davis, III of the Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl explains, "when an employee is not actually performing administrative work at a level which would qualify them for an exemption under the law, they should be paid overtime premiums for working over forty (40) hours a week."

According to the Complaint, Plaintiffs and other Implementation Consultants were primarily responsible for assisting Defendant's clients with implementing their payroll software. It is alleged that Plaintiffs and other Implementation Consultants were given a voluminous amount of work that required them to work overtime regularly, despite not being properly compensated for their additional time.
