On Friday, May 1, 2020, Fitapelli & Schaffer, LLP filed a collective action lawsuit against Twin Stone Designs and Installation, Inc., a South Florida-based marble and tile installation company, for unpaid overtime. Twin Stone sources and installs marble and tile to some of the largest job sites in the Southeast, such as highly rated hotels and casinos.
The lawsuit alleges that Twin Stone improperly paid its marble and tile installation workers “straight time” for overtime rather than time and a half their rates of pay. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, these employees should have received overtime at a rate no less than 1.5 times their rates of pay.
Often times, construction companies improperly pay their workers straight time for hours they work over 40 in a workweek, despite the FLSA’s clear requirement.
