Dover, DE (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
On May 31, 2013, a former account executive, also known as an inside sales representative, for James, Stevens & Daniels Inc. and JSD Management, Inc. (“JSD”) filed a proposed collective action lawsuit in Delaware federal court seeking overtime wages. The lawsuit alleges that JSD violated federal overtime laws by failing to pay time-and-a-half overtime to its account executives. In the complaint, the plaintiff claims that JSD misclassified him and other account executives as exempt salaried employees, asserting that they do not fit under any of the legal exemptions from the law’s overtime pay requirements. This case is entitled, Buker v. James, Stevens & Daniels, Inc., and JSD Management, Inc., Court File No. 1:13-cv-00967-UNA (District of Delaware).
A related case was previously filed by debt collectors for JSD, alleging that they were also misclassified as exempt employees and that JSD violated federal law by failing to pay debt collectors time-and-a-half for overtime worked. That case is entitled, Jackson v. James, Stevens & Daniels, Inc., and JSD Management, Inc., Court File No. 1:12-cv-01102-SLR (District of Delaware).
JSD is a debt collections agency located in Dover, Delaware. It sells debt collection services on commercial debts to businesses.
Plaintiffs’ attorney Alexander Baggio stated, “We believe JSD’s account executives and debt collectors were not paid for the overtime hours they worked, and we intend to recover the overtime pay that our clients are entitled to under the law.”
