According to Unpaid Wages Settlement, the iQor failed to pay wages to its call center employees between the periods of 2007 to 2014. Thus the class employees filed a case under the violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act against the iQor. By doing so, they secured $8.75 million settlement against the company.
The class members in Unpaid Wages Settlement who filed case were working as sales agents, collection agents, and customer care agents in iQor. They were working in different branches of it in various states like Arizona, California, Colorado, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, and South Carolina.
The statement given by the employee of iQor
Lead plaintiff Paris shoots alleged that the call centre company failed to pay him and other contact centre employees for short rest breaks as mentioned in the federal and state employment laws. Further, he alleged that during his service in the company, the iQor used a program tailored “TimeQuey” to track the time hours of contact centre employees.
How does the “TimeQuey” program affect the employee?
The “TimeQuey” labelled the time as “break” when the employee’s computer remains idle for two or more minutes. Whether the employees were on short restroom break or in meetings, the program labelled all their time under “break.” And the shoot or other employees did not get any pay for those breaks.
However, the iQor wage and hour class action lawsuit alleging that the “TimeQey” system violated the state labour laws as well as the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FSLA).
According to the FSLA and state labour law, it is mandatory for companies to pay fairly to their employees along with reasonable meals and restroom breaks.
Therefore the class members who worked for the iQor from 2007 to 2014 can claim for compensation under the iQor settlement case.
