Armored Car Overtime Lawsuits

brinksarmoredcarUnder the Motor Carrier Exemption, certain employees involved in driving and transportation are ineligible for overtime. But the SAFETEA-LU Technical Corrections Act, enacted in 2008, allows drivers to receive overtime pay if their work involves driving non-commercial—meaning they weigh less than 10,000 pounds—vehicles. The standard requires part of the work to involve non-commercial vehicles, not all of it, so an employee who spends less than 50 percent of his or her time driving non-commercial vehicles may still be eligible for overtime pay.

Courts have disagreed on whether or not an armored transportation worker must spend all of his or her time driving commercial vehicles to be exempt from overtime pay. Some courts have found that even if minimal time is spent operating commercial vehicles, the employee is not eligible for overtime pay.

Armored Car Lawsuits In March 2015 the Third Circuit found in favor of armored car drivers, and ordered Eastern Armored to pay overtime to the plaintiff in its lawsuit. The panel found that the lower court was correct in ruling that because the plaintiff was at the wheel of a vehicle classified as non-commercial for 49 percent of her workdays, she was eligible for overtime. The lawsuit was Ashley McMaster v. Eastern Armored Services Inc, case number 14-1010 in the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Employees who work in armored transportation may be eligible for overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Not all employees who drive armored vehicles are exempt from overtime pay. Eligibility is determined by specific job duties and the type of vehicles driven. Employees who are misclassified as exempt from overtime pay may be able to file a lawsuit against their employer to recover lost wages.

Brink’s Unpaid Wages: The Downside to Being “On” at All Times

Olympia, WA: It was about 18 months ago that Brink’s Incorporated (Brink’s), the renowned armored car company, was hit with a proposed class-action lawsuit alleging non-payment of overtime wages, together with a failure to provide the legally required uninterrupted meal period as guaranteed by California law. The Armored Car Drivers Unpaid Overtime lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court in November 2014, appears to demonstrate a classic disconnect between the employment laws of the state, and a job culture that suggests employees must be diligent in their duties and “on,” as it were, at all times due to the value of the financial cargo contained in the rolling vault on wheels READ MORE

And using Armored Car Drivers Unpaid Overtime as an example, it’s easy to see how things can go off the rails quickly, leaving employees with less pay than they might otherwise deserve READ MORE

I just started working with an armored truck company and I was wondering, even if I'm new there am I still able to seek non payment of overtime? I guess what I'm trying to say is even if I am new can I still file a claim for not being paid overtltime?
