Bruister & Associates – Overtime Pay Lawsuit for DirecTV Satellite Installers
Bruister & Associates (Bruister) contracts with DirecTV to install and service DirecTV Satellite systems. We currently represent a group of installers (POV and COV), service technicians and field trainers who worked for Bruister. These employees filed a lawsuit against Bruister to recover unpaid overtime wages.
The employees allege that Bruister requires them to work off the clock without compensation. That is, Bruister requires them to work hours that are unrecorded and unpaid. These hours include time performing the following duties:
- Pre-Calling customers
- Planning their daily Route
- Cleaning and Maintaining their Vans
- Traveling to their first job of the day
- Traveling from their last job of the day
- Traveling between jobs during the workday
- Taking Inventory and Re-Stocking their Vans
- Attending meetings
- Completing Paperwork
In addition, these employees claim that when Bruister did pay overtime it was paid at an artificially low rate not the rate required by federal law.
