Burch, C. v. Cerner Corporation, Case No. 15CA-CC00239, Circuit Court of Cass County, Missouri
Our firm, along with Hawks Quindel and Williams Dirks Dameron, filed a class action complaint on behalf of Learning Consultants employed by Cerner Corporation. These employees seek to recover unpaid overtime wages and related penalties under Missouri wage and hour laws.
This lawsuit is about whether Cerner violated state wage laws by failing to pay overtime to its Learning Consultants. State wage and hour laws require payment of overtime wages unless an employee’s job duties make him/her exempt from overtime wages. This requirement exists regardless of whether the employee is paid on an hourly or salary basis. The lawsuit alleges that the job duties of Learning Consultants did not exempt them from overtime wages and penalty damages.
This case is brought as a class action. If the case is certified as a class action, you will automatically be included. We would still like to hear from you to discuss your experience as a Learning Consultant and to ensure you are included in the class.
Can my employer fire me or retaliate against me?
The law prohibits anyone, including your employer, from discrimination or retaliating against you for taking part in this case or because you have exercised your rights.
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 that settlement or final judgment.
In a class action lawsuit, one or more people called “class representatives” bring claims 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 a former Learning Consultant. If this matter is certified as a Class Action by the Court, the named plaintiff will represent the class and the law firms Hawks Quindel, S.C., Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. and Williams Dirks Dameron, LLC will serve as class counsel.
