Case Title: Landers v. CWI, Inc.
Case No. 2:18-cv-00102
On August 2, 2018, we filed this collective action on behalf of all current and former hourly employees who worked for CWI, Inc. and were not paid for all hours worked and/or did not receive the correct amount of overtime.
What is the Case about?
We filed this collective action against CWI in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky for a class of hourly employees.
The Case alleges that CWI violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by not paying its hourly employees for all hours worked and/or not paying these employees the correct amount of overtime. Specifically, CWI required hourly employees to work off the clock in the morning and after their shift. Hourly employees also received a commission based on their sales. CWI failed to include these commissions in the hourly employees’ overtime rate.
Plaintiff believes that he and other hourly employees are entitled to recover unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, interest on the unpaid wages, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, and costs.
Who is Eligible for this Case?
Anyone who worked for CWI as an hourly employee in the past three years (five years if you worked in Kentucky) are potentially eligible for the Case.
