Despite being called ‘auditors,’ these employees’ jobs were largely mechanical and did not involve the independent discretion and judgment necessary to qualify them as exempt from the overtime laws.
Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) December 21, 2011
On December 19, 2011, Michelle Weber, an auditor who performs profit recovery audit services for PRGX, filed a complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota on behalf of herself and all current and former employees who work as auditors or in similar job titles. The complaint alleges that PRGX incorrectly classified Weber and other auditors as “exempt” employees and paid them a salary, thereby failing to pay them the proper overtime wages they were due. PRGX, formerly known as PRG-Schultz International, Inc., is a business analytics and information services firm headquartered in Atlanta, GA.
Weber’s attorney, Andrew Chase, stated, “Despite being called ‘auditors,’ these employees’ jobs were largely mechanical and did not involve the independent discretion and judgment necessary to qualify them as exempt from the overtime laws. We are seeking to get them paid an overtime premium for the overtime hours they worked.”
Weber is represented by Paul J. Lukas and Andrew G. Chase from the law firm of Nichols Kaster, PLLP in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Shannon A. Nelson from the Jackson S. Baehman Law Office in Woodbury, Minnesota.
The case was filed in the District of Minnesota and is entitled Weber v. PRGX USA Inc., Court File No. 0:11-cv-03631.
