  • Failure to Pay Overtime: Allen v. Renaissance Head Start

Sommers Schwartz attorney Kevin Stoops filed a class action against Metropolitan Children and Youth, Inc. – Renaissance Head Start on behalf of a group of Assistant Teachers employed as hourly workers. According to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs participated in classroom operations, including planning and carrying out activities, supervising the children and classroom, and maintaining a nurturing and supportive classroom environment, regularly working more than 40 hours per week, yet did not receive overtime pay as required by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. Additionally, the suit alleges that the defendant willfully violated the FLSA by directing the plaintiffs to submit time cards reflecting no more than 40 hours in any given week and rejecting all time cards showing more than 40 hours. The matter is currently pending in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.
