According to the news provider, Elizabeth Shea and Barbara Gurtin filed the lawsuit recently in US District Court in Fresno on behalf of themselves and other employees.
The lawsuit seeks to recover lost overtime wages that the workers reportedly deserve under the Fair Labor Standards Act and California overtime laws.
The employees claim that Ryla required its customer service representatives at its call center in Clovis to perform the unpaid work prior to and after their shifts. Some of the duties reportedly included setting up "call backs" and going over work-related e-mails.
The lawsuit is the latest to call into question Ryla's overtime pay practices, as similar action has reportedly been taken in Georgia, Alabama and Indiana, the news source said.
Ryla Teleservices, which was founded in 2001, is headquartered in Kennesaw, Georgia, according to the company's Web site.
