Ingles Market Violated Wage and Overtime Pay Laws According to Lawsuit

Employees who work more than forty hours in one work week are entitled by law to receive overtime pay. However, many companies find ways around this law and many misclassify their employees as being exempt from the pay. If you or someone you know has worked more than forty hours in one work week but failed to receive your overtime pay, then you should speak to a Tennessee employment overtime pay lawyer right away.

According to this case, Nathan D. Gilliard, an Ingles Market co-manager from Madisonville, Tennessee claims that the company willing failed to follow the regulations of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The lawsuit states that the company has a policy in place which denies its salaried non-exempt employees from receiving their overtime pay as required by law.
Gilliard says that, “I worked long hours at the request of Ingles in order to serve my customers and help make Ingles Markets successful. Ingles didn’t pay me what it was required to pay me for overtime. We just want to be paid a fair wage for all the hours we’ve worked.” According to the lawsuit, the company has denied its employees overtime pay they deserve by law.

The lawsuit is seeking certification as a class action lawsuit and is seeking to get back unpaid wages, liquidated damages, interest, attorney’s fees, and court costs for eligible Ingles Market employees who wish to be part of the lawsuit.
