This lawsuit seeks to recover unpaid overtime wages for Drivers who worked for A-1 Limousine, Inc. The drivers allege that A-1 Limousine violated federal law by failing to pay them overtime premium compensation for hours worked over 40 in a week.

Today, our firm, along with co-counsel The Hayber Law Firm, LLC, started this class/collective action lawsuit by filing a Complaint in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey against A-1 Limousine Inc. and two individual members of its management. The lawsuit alleges that A-1 violated the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New Jersey Wage and Hour Law by failing to pay its drivers overtime premium compensation when they worked over 40 hours in a week. Instead, the drivers where just paid their regular hourly rate or “straight-time.” The lawsuit seeks to proceed on behalf of all Drivers employed by A-1 within the past three years.
