Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
On May 8, 2012, a former employee of LivingSocial, Inc., formerly known as Hungry Machine, Inc., filed a lawsuit in District Court of Columbia seeking overtime pay. She brought the case on behalf of inside sales representatives who worked for LivingSocial nationwide within the last three years as well as those who worked in New York during the past six years. In her complaint, she alleges that LivingSocial misclassified her and her co-workers as exempt salaried employees, asserting that they do not fit under any of the legal exemptions from the law’s overtime pay requirements.
LivingSocial is an email marketer of local products and services to individuals. It offers daily deals to its customers via email.
Plaintiff’s attorney Michele Fisher stated, "LivingSocial is a marketer of deals, but unfortunately its employees are getting a raw deal when it comes to the company’s failure to pay them for all their hours worked."
Plaintiffs are represented by Michele R. Fisher and Tim C. Selander from Nichols Kaster, PLLP in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Sundeep Hora from Alderman, Devorsetz & Hora PLLC in Washington, DC.
The case is entitled, Holt v. LivingSocial, Inc., f/k/a Hungry Machine, Inc., Court File No.: 1:12-cv-00745 (District of Columbia). Additional information about how to make a claim in the case may be found at http://www.nka.com or by calling Nichols Kaster, PLLP toll free at (877) 448-0492.
