On December 6, 2013, we filed a class action Complaint on behalf of salaried Quality Assurance “QA” employees against EPIC Systems Corporation. These QA employees seek to recover unpaid overtime wages and related penalties under both the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and Wisconsin wage laws. If you are a QA who would like to participate in this lawsuit, you must return a consent form, which can be found here.
This lawsuit is about whether EPIC violated federal and state wage laws by failing to pay time and a half overtime to its QA employees. Federal and state wage and hour laws require payment of overtime wages unless an employees job duties make him/her exempt from overtime wages. The lawsuit alleges that the job duties of QAs were such that they were not exempt from overtime wages and are thus owed back wages.
If you worked as an EPIC QA at any time during the past three years, you can join this action by sending a consent form, found here, to the attorneys representing the Class. Until you return the consent form, the statute of limitations on your claim will continue to run. Thus the length of your claim for federal overtime wages will grow smaller until a consent form is filed with the Court.
The law prohibits anyone, including your employer, from discriminating or retaliating against you for taking part in this case or because you have exercised your rights under the FLSA.
You do not have to pay anything to our firm if you join the lawsuit. We are handling this case on a contingency basis. This means we will only be paid if the lawsuit is successful in obtaining relief through a settlement or a final judgment; our payment will come only out of that settlement or final judgment.
In a class action lawsuit, one or more people called “class representatives” sue on behalf of themselves and other people who have similar claims. Together, they are called a “class” or “class members.” The proposed class representative in this case is Evan Nordgren, a former Quality Assurance employee. If this matter is certified as a Class Action by the Court, Mr. Nordgren will serve as the representative of the class and the law firms of Hawks Quindel, S.C. and Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. will serve as class counsel.
