Cable Installers to be Notified of Right to Opt-In to AmComm Overtime Pay Lawsuit

Overtime pay claims for cable installers in southeast Michigan may go forward with judicial notice to the potential class, federal judge rules. Overtime pay attorneys at Nacht Law, together with Boston Law Firm of Lichten & Liss-Riordan PC filed the FLSA case last year on behalf of former cable installers for the White Lake based company AMcomm. The lawsuit alleges that named Plaintiffs and many other similarly situated were inappropriately classified as independent contractors and denied overtime pay and other benefits of employment as a result.

The Parental Bereavement Act of 2013 : FMLA and Employment Protection for Bereaved Parents

While the 1993 Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides twelve workweeks of leave to eligible employees for the birth of a child or the care of a sick loved one, the law as it currently stands provides no direct protection for families facing the death of a child. This lack of direct FMLA protection creates inconsistent results - employees who are diagnosed with illnesses triggered by the death of a child may have an entitlement to take FMLA leave for the treatment of their own serious health conditions, while others who have not sought medical treatment may fall outside the scope of FMLA protection.
