I. What is this case about?

Unpaid overtime wages. Project Accountants at Walsh Construction Company are paid a salary but not paid any overtime wages when they work beyond 40 hours in a week. We claim in this lawsuit that this is wrong and that Project Accountants are entitled to be paid on an hourly basis, including time and a half when they work more than 40 hours in a week. Click here to read the lawsuit itself.


II. But I am salaried? I thought that mean that I don’t get overtime?

Not true. Whether or not you get overtime is a question of law, and the fact that an employer pays you a salary and no overtime premiums does not mean that you aren’t entitled to overtime. We see many examples of employees who are told that they are salaried when in fact they should have been paid on an hourly basis, including time and a half for hours over forty.


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 Project Accountants. Project Accountants from around the country can join and be represented.


IV. Can I join? If so, how?

Yes. If you were a Project Accountants for Walsh Construction Company during the last 3 years you can join. Click on the “Consent Form” button below to view and print a Consent Form. Sign it, send it to us at the Hayber Law Firm (Fax: 860-218-9555 or email to info@hayberlawfirm.com) and we’ll file it with the court.

If your status as a Project Accountant at Walsh Construction Company ended more than 3 years ago, you might not be able to join. 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.


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

Don’t worry. Employees who are misclassified as “exempt” and 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.


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

Call us. You are always welcome to call us at Hayber Law Firm who will do their best to answer your questions. Our number is 860-522-8888.


VIII. Who are the lawyers representing Project Accountants?

Susman, Duffy and Segaloff, P.C. and Hayber Law Firm, LLC. The Project Accountants who brought this lawsuit are being represented by the Susman, Duffy and Segaloff and Hayber Law Firm. We are experienced overtime class action lawyers and have successfully handled cases like this in the past.


IX. How much can I expect to get?

It depends. We claim that Project Accountants 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.


X. 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.
