  1. Hewlett-Packard (HP) Technical Support Employees File Unpaid Overtime Lawsuit

  2. Technical Support employees of Hewlett-Packard (HP) have filed a class/collective action for unpaid overtime lawsuit.  The Technical Support employees who sued were employees with titles such as:

  3. Solutions Consultants, Technical Solutions Representatives, Technical Support Engineers, and Senior Technical Support Engineers. These employees sued HP alleging that they were

  4. misclassified as exempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and not paid overtime. According to their complaint, the primary duties of the Technical Support employees

  5. were installing, maintaining, and/or supporting computer software and/or hardware for HP.  The employees allegedly worked 50-60 hours each week but were

  6. only paid for 40 hours a week, in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.  Although the employees are classified as “Technical Support Engineers” etc., the lawsuit alleges

  7. that they are not exempt under the professional, executive, or administrative exemptions under the FLSA.  The employees in this case are seeking

  8. unpaid overtime and liquidated damages (same amount as unpaid overtime) for the past three years, and attorney fees and costs.

  9. Unpaid overtime violations alleged in this case are common in many industries.  Many employers knowingly or unknowingly misclassify the employees as exempt from overtime.

  10. The FLSA requires that if an employee is not exempt, and the employee works over 40 hours in a week, then that employee must be paid at overtime at the rate of

  11. 1.5 times the “regular rate” of pay for that employee. These alleged violations such as the misclassification as an exempt employee are common in many industries and occupations.

  12.  If you work over 40 hours a week, you should determine whether you are really exempt from overtime or if your employer is not paying you overtime in violation of the FLSA. 

  13. If you have questions about wage and hour issues, contact us for free consultation.
