On January 17, 2013, Riggan Law Firm, LLC, a St. Louis employment law firm, filed a lawsuit on behalf of its client against I.C.S. General Contracting, LLC d/b/a Reclaim Services for unpaid overtime wages. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of a former Project Manager who worked for the company, alleges that the Project Manager consistently worked more than 40 hours per week, yet he was not provided with overtime pay. While some employees are exempt from overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA"), the plaintiff in this case alleges that he was paid hourly and treated as a non-exempt employee, yet still was not paid one-and-one-half times his regular rate of pay for overtime hours. The lawsuit alleges violations of the FLSA and the Missouri Minimum Wage Law ("MMWL"), which also requires that non-exempt employees be paid a premium rate of pay for overtime hours.
According to its website, Reclaim Services is a St. Charles, Missouri-based company specializing in construction and restoration services for the insurance industry and offers specialized services to restore damaged property and contents.
