ABBEY SPANIER INVESTIGATES J&R ELECTRONICS, INC. FOR FAILURE TO PAY OVERTIME COMPENSATION TO ITS SALES ASSOCIATES IN VIOLATION OF THE FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT AND STATE WAGE AND HOUR LAWS
Abbey Spanier is currently investigating J&R Electronics for unfair employment practices. J&R allegedly misclassifies its sales associates as exempt from the overtime requirements of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (the "FLSA"). The FLSA requires that most employees in the United States be paid at least the federal minimum wage for all hours worked and overtime pay at time and one-half the regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 hours in a workweek. Abbey Spanier is also investigating whether J&R requires its sales associates to work without paying them for that time by requiring sales associates to meet during non-work hours to discuss matters related to their employment, and to remain at work during time periods when there is no opportunity to earn a commission.
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.
