It is critical to both Indeed’s employees and other employers that the company follow the law with respect to overtime compensation
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
On August 13, 2013, a former inside sales representative for Indeed, Inc. (“Indeed”) filed a proposed collective and California class action lawsuit in California federal court seeking overtime wages. The lawsuit alleges that Indeed violated federal and state overtime laws by requiring employees to work in excess of 40 hours per week but failing to pay time-and-a-half overtime to its workers. In the complaint, the plaintiff claims that Indeed misclassified him and other inside sales representatives as exempt salaried employees, asserting that the employees do not fit under any of the legal exemptions from the law’s overtime pay requirements. This case is entitled, Rosh v. Indeed, Inc., Court File No. 5:13-cv-03751-PSG (Northern District of California).
Indeed is a job posting website located in Stamford, Connecticut. It sells pay-per-click job postings to employers.
Plaintiff’s attorney Adam Hansen stated, “It is critical to both Indeed’s employees and other employers that the company follow the law with respect to overtime compensation.”
