Case Title: Sandoval v. Serco, Inc.
Case No. 4:18-cv-01841
On September 17, 2018, we filed this collective action on behalf of all hourly call center employees of Serco.
What is the Case about?
We filed this collective action against Serco in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri for a class of hourly employees who were not paid for all hours worked.
The Case alleges that Serco violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay employees for all hours worked. Specifically, Serco does not pay employees for time spent booting up and logging into their computers. Serco also does not pay employees for time spent performing post-shift duties.
Plaintiff believes that she 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 in a Serco call center as an hourly employee within the past three years is potentially eligible for the Case.

Can I be fired for joining?
The law prohibits Employers, or their agents, from firing, harassing, discriminating, or retaliating against an employee for taking part in a case for back wages.
