Cook, et al. v. UnitedLex Professional Services, LLC
United States District Court for the District of Kansas, 2:20-cv-2250 Filed:
May 19, 2020
Our office filed a collective class action claim on behalf of Project Attorneys working for UnitedLex at their office locations nationwide. A collective class action claim for overtime pay was brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The lawsuit alleges that UnitedLex failed to pay these employees the proper overtime rate of pay for hours worked in excess of forty per workweek and that UnitedLex erroneously classified these employees as exempt from overtime under the professional exemption. Having a primary job duty of initial document review and organization, along with UnitedLex’s admission that these employees are not practicing law in any way, entitles these employees to overtime pay. The lawsuit seeks overtime pay on behalf of these employees who worked there within the past three years. It also seeks liquidated damages in an amount equal to the overtime pay owed.
