Arkansas Support Network
This is a collective action for overtime and minimum wage. Arkansas Support Network employs home care workers to assist individuals with developmental disabilities. Plaintiffs worked for Arkansas Support Network as direct support professionals and oftentimes worked over 40 hours per workweek. Despite working long hours, Plaintiffs were not paid overtime compensation. Instead, Plaintiffs were paid a flat rate for their work, which oftentimes did not compensate them at the required minimum wage.
In 2017, the Company was audited by the United States Department of Labor which determined Arkansas Support Network owed $650,000 in back wages to nearly 300 workers. The Company then began issuing payment to a number of employees. Plaintiffs contend, however, that they and the other direct support professionals employed by Arkansas Support Network are entitled to more compensation.
If you worked for Arkansas Support Network as a direct support professional at any time since January 1, 2015, and were not paid the minimum wage or one-and-a-half times your regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
It is illegal for your employer to fire or retaliate against you for joining a lawsuit.
We are looking for the following information:
- Any documents or records relating to your claim that you were entitled to overtime or other wages that you did not receive during your employment with Arkansas Support Network;
- Any documents or records relating to the Department of Labor’s audit of Arkansas Support Network, including any checks issued to employees for “back wages owed;” and
- Anything that leads you to believe that Arkansas Support Network knew about minimum wage and overtime wage laws.
