On October 23, 2013, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan approved a $300,000 settlement of an overtime lawsuit brought against Amurcon Corporation for violations of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). In the lawsuit, 35 plaintiffs alleged that Amurcon required them to take compensatory time off work in lieu of overtime pay, forced them to work off the clock without pay, and docked them pay for allegedly failing to punch in and out correctly – all contrary to protections guaranteed by the FLSA. The class of plaintiffs included many of Amurcon’s maintenance technicians, office staff, janitors, and security guards.
