Lebanon Farms Case Summary

This lawsuit was filed on behalf of drivers and loaders employed by a Pennsylvania trash hauling company in an effort to recover unpaid regular and overtime wages. The claims are brought under both federal wage law [the Fair Labor Standards Act] and Pennsylvania state wage law [the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act]. The workers allege that the company did not pay them for all of the hours they actually worked, including by prohibiting them from even recording certain hours spent gassing and cleaning trucks at the end of a shift. These “off the clock” hours should have been paid and included in calculating overtime pay. The employees also dispute the validity of the half-time method (applicable to day rate employees) used by the company when calculating the overtime wages that were in fact paid. By improperly using this method, the company is alleged to have underpaid the overtime wages actually owed.

A situation that involves attorneys is emotional - Mike Lore is an attentive listener and really helped me come to the terms of my situation. He used his understanding of the law to construct a case that was grounded in fact and skipped the needless 'finger-pointing' and 'he-said/she-said' back and forth. Mike's professionalism with me (the client) and the opposing attorney moved the case forward quickly with a successful result.

After talking to HR and trying to find answers to my questions about the overtime laws online, I was so confused. I contacted the firm and spoke to Stacy. She was so nice and took the time to review my pay stubs. She explained what the law requires and how it applied to my job. Turns out I do not have a case. Even though I didn’t have a case, she sent me a follow up email with even more information. So glad I called them.

We live in another state, but my husband's company sent him to work in Texas for 6 months. With the laws being completely different from our home state, it was nice to speak to a professional that could put us at ease and explain the laws to us.
