C. Nova Mud Lawsuit: Potential Stakes Involved

Federal wage law permits eligible current and former employees to potentially recover double the amount of their unpaid overtime wages. Based on estimates from our clients, we believe that Services paid on a salary plus bonus basis may be due over a thousand dollars per pay period of their employment if Nova Mud violated federal overtime law.

WARNING: Employees in federal overtime actions can only recover wages dating three years back from the date they file their consent in federal court in an unpaid wage lawsuit. Employees that do not timely file their consent in a federal wage action may lose money each and every day they fail to file their consent in federal court to join a federal overtime action.
