On February 23, 2015, the firm Martin & Martin filed a collective/class action against Athens, Georgia based company Adams Tile & Terrazzo, Inc. and its owners Reuben Adams and Scott Adams. The Complaint alleges that the company’s floor installers were required to work more than forty hours per week and were not paid at a rate of one and one-half times their regular rate. The Complaint states that the company would assign a group of workers to a particular project and the workers traveled to the customer’s location and installed the flooring. Jobs typically ranged from between five to seven days. The Complaint alleges that the company compensated the floor installers on an hourly basis and required them to work more than forty hours per week but did not pay the floor installers time and one-half for all hours over forty.
The employees seek to recover unpaid wages, liquidated damages (“double damages”), and attorneys’ fees and costs. If you worked for Adams Tile and were not paid for your overtime work, contact us immediately. The statute of limitations continues to run until you join the case.
