Four former Fuyao Glass America employees have requested to join three other plaintiffs in the lawsuit against the auto glass manufacturer. The plaintiffs are suing the company for alleged unpaid wages, including overtime hours.
The parties Chuck Dickens, Andre Cameron, Chad Clark and Nettie Halliburton have asked to join Julia Staggs, John Greene and Stephen Newman.
The lawsuit claims the company refused to pay the plaintiffs’ overtime due to the defendant’s automatic meal break deduction policy. According to court documents, the parties allege all hours worked over 40 were to be compensated at a rate of one and a half of their regular rate.
In addition, Staggs claims she and 100 other employees were promised time-and-a-half to work the Saturday and Sunday following Thanksgiving 2016. Pay, she alleges, she did not receive.
The plaintiffs are seeking class action on behalf of themselves and all current and former hourly, non-exempt production employees working at the Moraine, Ohio facility.
Fuyao Glass America’s response to the complaint is due on October 2.
