Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) June 13, 2016 -- A federal class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a field representative against RP Field Services, LLC and National Creditors Connection, Inc., alleging the companies failed to pay federally mandated overtime for hours worked in excess of 40 in a work week. The lawsuit seeks class certification on behalf of all former and current field representatives who were allegedly not paid overtime wages for hours worked in excess of 40 hours in workweek. The field representative is represented by Bohrer Brady, LLC.
RP Field Services, LLC and National Creditors Connection, Inc. are field contact service producers. RP Field Services, LLC claims to be an exclusive regional vendor of National Creditors Connection, Inc. Field representatives make contact with debtors who are in arrears in order to deliver collection material, instigate calls between the debtor and the companies and photograph collateral that is the subject of the debt.
The lawsuit claims that RP Field Services, LLC and National Creditors Connection, Inc. have misclassified field representatives as independent contractors in an attempt to avoid payment of overtime wages under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). The FLSA requires most employers in the United States to pay non-exempt employees overtime pay at one and one-half times the regular pay rate for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. The lawsuit seeks to recover alleged unpaid wages, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, interest and costs.
Plaintiff is represented by Philip Bohrer and Scott Brady from Bohrer Brady, LLC, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The case is entitled Zeno v. RP Field Services, LLC and National Creditors Connection, Inc., No. 4:16-cv-01136 and is filed in the Southern District of Texas Houston Division.
