MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Jan. 26, 2014 - PRLog -- Lopez v. Best Loading Services, Inc., a lawsuit involving allegations of unpaid overtime wages and violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), has been filed as a collective action in federal court in Tennessee. The Plaintiffs in this action, represented by Andrew Frisch of Morgan & Morgan, are Unloaders, Lumpers, and Freight Handlers who claim that they did not receive proper overtime compensation for overtime hours worked.

Lopez v. Best Loading Services, Inc. (Case Number: 2:2014cv02053) was filed in the Western District of Tennessee. The presiding judge is Judge S. Thomas Anderson.

In this collective action lawsuit, the Unloaders, (also referred to as Lumpers or Freight Handlers) allege that Best Loading violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) by failing to properly compensation them for overtime hours. Instead, the lawsuit alleges that Best Loading paid them solely by production (by the truck) without any additional compensation when they worked over 40 hours in a work week.

Morgan and Morgan overtime attorney Andrew R. Frisch is representing the Unloaders in an effort to recover unpaid wages for the overtime work they performed, but for which they did not receive the proper overtime pay. According to a federal law known as the FLSA, non-exempt employees are entitled to time-and-a-half pay for all hours worked over forty in a given workweek.

All unpaid overtime claims filed by Unloaders, Lumpers and/or Freight Handlers who worked for Best Loading within the last three (3) years and whom were not paid proper overtime are eligible to join the case.
