Gilman Law LLP, a Law Firm Dedicated to Protecting the Rights of Employees, is Investigating Employment Violation Claims Against PulteGroup, Lennar Corp., D.R. Horton, KB Home and Other Major Home Builders
Naples, FL (PRWEB) October 18, 2011
Gilman Law LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of employees for over 30 years and a leading employment violations law firm, is investigating potential claims against major residential home builders for alleged violations of state and federal labor laws. Companies currently under investigation include:
The U.S. Department of Labor is investigating these and other major home builders to determine if they committed minimum wage violations and illegally denied overtime pay to their employees. The Labor Department is also investigating allegations that many home builders misclassify employees as independent contractors to get around federal wage laws. In 2010, the DOL imposed more than $7 million in fines following investigations of individual home builders that involved 4,000 workers. Violations uncovered included the failure to pay for all hours worked and paying piece-work rates that resulted in pay below the minimum wage.
