We are currently investigating Cerner’s pay practices with respect to its Learning Consultants. Employers must pay all employees overtime wages for hours worked over 40 per week, unless they can show that the employee qualifies for a particular exemption from the law. This is true for both hourly and salaried employees. We understand that Cerner’s Learning Consultants are paid a fixed salary with no additional compensation for their overtime hours. This pay practice may be a violation of federal and state wage and hour laws.
Our firm, along with the law firms of Hawks Quindel, S.C. and the Law Office of Williams Dirks Dameron LLC of Kansas City, Missouri, recently filed class action lawsuits on behalf of certain Application Management Services employees and US Delivery Consultants. You can read more about these cases by clicking here. The lawsuits allege that Cerner failed to pay these groups of employees overtime wages despite the fact that the employees did not qualify for an exemption from the law. We believe that Cerner may have engaged in similar violations with respect to other groups of employees, including the Learning Consultants.
If you worked as a salaried Learning Consultant in the past 3 years and were not compensated for all hours over 40 per week, you may have a claim for unpaid overtime and penalty damages.
