Loomis accused of denying overtime pay to a former Armed Service Technician in violation of federal law
Online PR News – 17-September-2020 – Baltimore, Maryland – On September 11, 2020, a former employee (“Plaintiff”) of Loomis Armored US, LLC (“Loomis” and/or "Defendant") filed a class and collective action lawsuit against his former employer in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland (Case No.:1:20-cv-02623). Plaintiff alleges that Loomis violated the Fair Labor Standard Act ("FLSA") and seeks to recover unpaid overtime wages.
Loomis provides cash handling and deposit services to a wide range of customers. Plaintiff worked as an Armed Service Technician (“AST”) for Loomis and was paid an hourly wage for his work. Plaintiff and other ASTs were primarily responsible for providing armed courier and delivery support while transporting valuables in Defendant’s vehicles. ASTs either worked as armed drivers, who were responsible for operating the vehicles, or armed messengers, who served as couriers.
Plaintiff alleges that Loomis violated the wage and hour provisions of the FLSA by failing to properly pay him and other ASTs time-and-a-half (1.5) their regular hourly rate when they worked over forty (40) hours a week. According to the Complaint, Plaintiff and other ASTs routinely drove vehicles weighing less than ten thousand (10,000) pounds. Therefore, Plaintiff has alleged that he and other ASTs were not subject to the Motor Carrier Act (“MCA”) exemption to the FLSA and entitled to overtime wages.
