Former Safelite Technician Joins Alleged “Forty Hour Plan” Lawsuit

Another former Safelite technician has joined two other plaintiffs in the lawsuit against the company for alleged unpaid wages due to the company’s purported “Forty Hour Plan.” The plaintiffs are seeking $500,000.

Quincy Williams has joined plaintiffs Lamar Mackall and Ryan Hunter, who claim the company illegally altered employee time cards so it would not have to pay them overtime, or any hours worked over 40.

The plaintiffs claim they were not compensated properly for worked overtime hours, their hourly pay and a half, due to the alleged policy, which denied the employees overtime wages they were required to work. The lawsuit claims technicians were often required to work overtime due to weather, rioting and looting.

According to Mackall and Hunter, the “Forty Hour Plan” was enforced throughout the Mid-Atlantic region including Delaware, Maryland and Virginia.

Safelite recently responded to the complaint and denied all of the allegations brought forth by Mackall and Hunter. Attorneys for the defendant claimed the company maintained and implemented proper time recordings of all its employees, including the plaintiffs.
