Employees Sue Raytheon Company, Ecolab, and Enterprise Rent-A-Car for Wage-and-Hour Violations

By on November 29, 2010

Employees claiming they have been shortchanged and not properly compensated for their labor hours have sued Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), Ecolab (NYSE: ECL), and Enterprise Rent-A-Car.  

On October 7, 2010, a lawsuit was filed against Raytheon, the defense and homeland security technology company, for failing to implement a “timekeeping system to accurately record and pay” for laboratory employees and for not compensating them accordingly “for the actual number of hours they worked each day,” in violation of state overtime laws.

On November 2, 2010, employees of Ecolab sued the company, alleging Ecolab failed to adequately pay the proper amount of overtime wages to repair and maintenance employees by intentionally misclassifying them and giving them job titles such as “Route Managers,” “Route Sales Managers,” “Sales Route Specialists,” “Service Installers,” and “Service Professionals.”

On November 17, 2010, a class action lawsuit was filed against Enterprise Rent-A-Car Company in the Southern District of California, alleging that the company violated state labor laws by failing to pay management assistants and trainees for the proper number of hours they worked and spent training for the job, including both regular hours and overtime hours.

The actions discussed here were not filed by Milberg.
