MINNEAPOLIS, MN–(EMWNews – August 19, 2008) – Nichols Kaster, PLLP has brought a putative
nationwide overtime lawsuit on behalf of sanitation truck drivers and
ride-along helpers. The suit was filed against Waste Management, Inc. in
the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota on August
18, 2008. The suit was brought by current and former sanitation truck
drivers and ride-along helpers who allege that Waste Management, Inc.
regularly required them to work through their unpaid breaks in order to get
their routes done quickly.
Plaintiffs’ attorney Michele Fisher stated, “It is unlawful for an employer
to deduct time for meal periods that employees miss because they are too
busy trying to get their routes done in a timely manner. We believe that
Waste Management, Inc. knew these employees were routinely missing their
breaks, but still denied them this pay.”
Plaintiffs are represented by Michele Fisher and Paul Lukas from Nichols
Kaster, PLLP, which has offices in Minneapolis, Minnesota and San
Francisco, California. The case is entitled Saleen v. Waste Management,
Inc., 08-4959 PJS/AJB.
