Pike & Lustig To Represent Jupiter Police Officers In Lawsuit Against Town
Pike & Lustig has filed a class complaint case against the Town of Jupiter in connection with failing to pay overtime to hundreds of their police officers. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) states that hourly employees must be paid time and a half for any hours of overtime worked and the Town of Jupiter has not followed through with the appropriate amount of payment to its officers. After six months of letters putting the Town of Jupiter on notice, they had yet to rectify the situation. Therefore Pike & Lustig was forced to file the lawsuit for the benefit of the officers who are collectively owed millions of dollars. Each officer will have different financial damages depending on the number of hours of unpaid overtime they worked. Currently, allegations go back as far as three years ago, however we expect to exceed that number as research and discoveries into the investigation continue.
