Case Title: Johnson v. Nation Waste, Inc.
Case No. 4:18-cv-04476
On November 27, 2018, we filed this collective action on behalf of all Waste Disposal Driver employees of Nation Waste.
What is the Case about?
We filed this collective action against Nation Waste, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas for a class of Waste Disposal Drivers who were not paid for all hours worked.
The Case alleges that Nation Waste violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay employees for all hours worked. Specifically, Nation Waste automatically deducts 30 minutes of pay from its drivers for their lunches, even though the Drivers regularly work through their lunch period.
Plaintiff believes that he and other employees are entitled to recover unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, interest on the unpaid wages, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, and costs.
