Serlin International Limousine Service “Limousine Driver” Overtime Lawsuit

Limousine Drivers at Serlin International Limousine Service are suing for unpaid overtime wages. You might be able to join if you were a Limousine Driver at Serlin during the last three years. Continue reading for details.

Number of people who have joined this lawsuit as of October 24, 2014: 9

 

I. Who is  the defendant?

Serlin International Limousine. According to their website, Serlin International Limousine is one of the largest, most successful executive transportation companies in Connecticut. They have been in the limousine industry for more than 27 years. They operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week providing service in more than 450 cities around the country. 


II. What is this case about?

Unpaid overtime wages. Limousine Drivers at Serlin Transportation were paid a flat hourly rate, but were not paid any overtime wages when they worked beyond 40 hours in a week. We claim in this lawsuit that this is wrong and that Limousine Drivers are entitled to be paid time and a half when they work more than 40 hours in a week.


III. What court is the case filed in? Does it matter?

Connecticut. This case is filed in Federal Court in Connecticut. It is not limited, however, to Connecticut Limousine Drivers. We are seeking to represent all Limousine Drivers who worked for Serlin International Limousine Service.


IV. What does the law require?

State and federal overtime laws require employers to pay time and a half when employees work more than 40 hours in a week. There are exceptions to this rule. Including, exemptions for executives, professionals, and administrators, there are also exemptions for outside sales and inside sales (but only when commissions are more than half of the employee’s total pay). Employees are allowed to join collective actions simply by signing and returning a consent form.


V. Can I join? If so, how?

Yes. If you were a Limousine Driver for Serlin Transportation, LLC during the last 3 years. Click on the “Consent Form” button below to view and print a Consent Form. Sign it, send it either to at the Quinn Law Firm or the Hayber Law Firm and we’ll file it with the court.

If your employment with Serlin ended more than 3 years ago, you might not be able to join. Call us to discuss this issue.


VI. 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.


VII. What if I don’t have records of my hours?

Don’t worry. Employees who are not paid overtime can still sue even if they didn’t keep time records. The hours that you worked can usually be determined by other methods, including when you logged in and off a computer system, when you sent emails or made phone calls and other ways.


VIII. Where can I go to get answers to my questions?

Call us. You are always welcome to call either the Quinn Law firm, at 203-877-5400, or the Hayber Law Firm, at 860-522-8888.  We will do our best to answer your questions.


IX. Who are the lawyers representing Limousine Drivers?

Both The Quinn Law Firm, LLC and The Hayber Law Firm, LLC. The Limousine Drivers who brought this lawsuit are being represented by two firms, The Quinn Law Firm and The Hayber Law Firm. We are experienced overtime class action lawyers and have successfully handled cases like this in the past.


X. How much can I expect to get?

It depends. We claim that Limousine Drivers 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.


XI. 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.
