ABBEY SPANIER INVESTIGATES INGERSOLL-RAND COMPANY FOR UNFAIR EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES RELATED TO UNPAID OVERTIME COMPENSATION AND OFF-THE-CLOCK WORK
Abbey Spanier is currently investigating Ingersoll-Rand Company for unfair employment practices. Ingersoll-Rand allegedly does not pay its Technicians for work performed before their scheduled shifts, depriving them of overtime compensation.
Ingersoll-Rand Technicians service, repair and install equipment used in the industrial and construction industry, including hoists, cranes, air compressors and air dryers. Ingersoll-Rand allegedly implemented a policy that Technicians' regular work hours are 7:00am to 3:30 pm with a half hour lunch break. However, Technicians are allegedly required to begin work before 7:00 am as they must donn protective uniforms, power up their PDAs or laptop computers to download and synchronize their daily assignments, determine necessary tools for those assignments and load them into their truck and travel to their first assignment. Technicians are not paid for this off-the-clock- work.
Federal and state wage and hour laws require that an employer pay employees for all time worked and time and a half for each hour worked in excess of 40 hours in a given workweek.
Abbey Spanier has been representing employees in class actions and collective actions in federal and state courts throughout the United States for over a decade.
