Jones Lang Lasalle Facing National Unpaid Overtime Class Action Lawsuit

- by

Dallas, TX: Commercial real estate brokerage giant Jones Lang Lasalle is facing an unpaid overtime class action lawsuit filed by maintenance worker and lead plaintiff Larry Jackson who alleges he was incorrectly classified as exempt from overtime.

In January, Jones Lang Lasalle allegedly reclassified its maintenance workers from salary to hourly employees, according to a lawsuit. Jackson claims that as a result, the refuses to pay him overtime after 40 hours a week.

"Since plaintiff has been re-classified, there have been multiple instances where he has not been paid for all of his overtime hours," the complaint states. "Plaintiff's manager has either doctored his time card to show that plaintiff only worked 40 hours or outright refused to pay plaintiff for his overtime hours."

In 2008, Chicago-based Jones Lang Lasalle purchased Dallas-based The Staubach Company for $613 million, creating the world's second-largest commercial real estate brokerage firm.

Jackson seeks actual and punitive damages for violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act. He is represented by J. Derek Braziel with Lee Braziel in Dallas.
