How did EG&G not pay overtime correctly?
The law requires that employees be properly paid for all time they are permitted to work. Our investigation has shown that EG&G wrongly denied or failed to pay wages and overtime to its Customer Service Representatives (and other similar hourly employees) for all the time they were permitted to work. For example, the employees were not paid for pre-shift activities such as logging in their systems. Or time was wrongly deducted when the employees were not logged in during the workday, such as going over the allotted ACW time or taking short breaks, etc. You can get more information about the case here.
