C. Butch’s Rathole Lawsuit: The Potential Stakes Involved

Federal wage law permits employees denied overtime wages to potentially recover double the amount of wages owed to them that accrued over the past three years. Based on estimates from our clients in other cases, including a case against Wyoming Casing, we believe that Butch’s Rathole Employees may be due over a thousand dollars per pay period of their employment if Butch’s Rathole failed to comply with federal overtime laws. 

D. Butch’s Rathole Lawsuit: Statute of Limitations Concerns in Federal Wage Actions

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. As a result, 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 a federal lawsuit.
