Pepsi Beverage Company “Bulk Customer Representative” Overtime Lawsuit

Bulk Customer Representatives at Pepsi are suing for unpaid overtime wages. You might be able to join if you were a Bulk Customer Representative at Pepsi during the last three years. Continue reading for details.

 

I. What is this case about?

Unpaid overtime wages. Bulk Customer Representatives at Pepsi Beverage Company are not paid time and a half for their overtime. They are paid only half time for hours worked beyond forty in a week. This method of overtime compensation is called the “fluctuating work week” method of overtime compensation. The system is complicated, but ultimately leads to Bulk Customer Representatives being paid a decreasing half time calculation, rather than the normal time and a half. Click here to read the lawsuit itself.


II. Who is this case intended to help?

We’ve brought a lawsuit challenging Pepsi’s use of the “half time” overtime system. We don’t think they are entitled to use it for a variety of reasons and believe that they should pay their Bulk Customer Representatives around the country back pay for the last three years that they’ve had this system in place.


III. What court is the case filed in?

Massachusetts. This case is filed in Federal Court in Massachusetts.


IV. Can I join? If so, how?

 Call us to discuss this issue.


V. Should I fear retaliation?

No. It is illegal to retaliate against an employee who joins a lawsuit like this. If you experience retaliation, we will help you.

The Bulk Customer Representatives who brought this lawsuit are being represented by the Hayber Law Firm in Hartford, Connecticut and the law firm of Lichten & Liss-Riordan, in Boston, Massachusetts. Both firms are experienced overtime class action lawyers and have successfully handled cases like this in the past


VIII. How much can I expect to get?

It depends. We claim that Bulk Customer Representatives should be paid for the hours they worked beyond forty in a week during the last three years. The actual amount you get (if any) will depend on how many hours you worked, your salary, and other factors.


IX. Will I have to pay any legal fees or costs?

No. We have agreed to work on this case on a “contingency” basis which means that our fee, and reimbursement for our costs, will come, if at all, out of any settlement. The court will closely supervise our fee petition and ensure that it is fair to the class.
