DISH Network Call Center Overtime Class Action

 
CHICAGO - Jan. 21, 2014 - PRLog -- Hundreds of current and former DISH Network call center workers have joined a federal lawsuit against DISH Network alleging overtime violations.  Stephan Zouras, LLP represents Inside Sales Associates (ISA’s) that work or have worked in DISH Network call center facilities.

In August 2012, Stephan Zouras filed a class action lawsuit alleging DISH Network required ISA’s to perform unpaid work before and after the start of their scheduled shift, including but not limited to booting up and logging on to their computers and initializing several software programs, and to perform unpaid work during breaks and lunch time.  The lawsuit also claims when ISA’s worked more than 40 hours per week, DISH Network failed to pay proper overtime wages.  Failing to pay hourly workers time and half for all hours worked beyond 40 hours in a workweek may result in a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act, as well as applicable state law.

After being sent to arbitration, on October 29, 2013 the Arbitrator ruled that the case should move forward as a class action.  This means all individuals who have worked for DISH Network as an ISA can join the case seeking unpaid wages and unpaid overtime.
