Freeman et al. v. General Dynamics Information Technology (Underpayment of Wages at Call Centers)
General Dynamics Information Technology agreed to pay $170,000 to settle Fair Labor Standards Act claims that the company failed to pay proper overtime wages to customer service representatives at its Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services call centers in Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Virginia. The plaintiffs alleged they had routinely performed preliminary work tasks that were not included in the company’s “on-the-clock” timekeeping system. The settlement did not include an admission of liability on the part of the company.
