Overtime lawsuits in the news

Being curious, today I did a search for lawsuits regarding overtime that were in the mainstream media and to be honest, I was quite shocked with how many I found. Each of these lawsuits allege that the companies were either forcing employees to work overtime, without compensating them for that time, or had somehow miscalculated the employee's time entries...

I guess the conclusion that I really came to was that by using a time and labor solution that automatically tracked overtime could come in handy when either trying to prove these claims, or defending against them.

Here are two of the more noteworthy lawsuits that are very topical. The first in California:

And this one, in Arizona:

Perhaps this will make other CEOs and managers out there realize the amazing peace of mind they can receive by using a time and labor system which offers features focused on the confusing and costly issue of overtime.
