LAS VEGAS – Cogburn Law Offices recently announced that a U.S. District Court judge in Las Vegas ruled current and former Boyd Gaming employees nationwide can participate in a wage and overtime lawsuit. The lawsuit filed by Cogburn Law Offices on behalf of current and former Boyd Gaming employees may recoup millions of dollars in unpaid wages.
Cogburn Law Offices filed the class action lawsuit against Boyd Gaming for allegedly violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Current and former employees allege Boyd Gaming failed to pay overtime wages to employees for work performed in excess of 40 hours per week. Employees allege Boyd Gaming rounded down (“shaved”) time without their knowledge and required workers to work off the clock, resulting in improper calculations of wages and unpaid overtime.
There are claims of unfair compensation at all of Boyd Gaming’s 22 gaming properties nationwide. The FLSA provides standards for minimum wage and overtime compensation. Current and former employees who worked for Boyd Gaming at any time in the past 3 years and were required to punch-in or punch-out for work are eligible to participate in the nationwide overtime collective-action lawsuit against Boyd Gaming.
