The plaintiffs claims filed in their October 2013 lawsuit that Brickman Group underpaid overtime to its salary-paid Supervisors by using a half-time "fluctuating workweek" overtime pay plan that allegedly did not comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state laws.
The settlement classes involve approximately 476 original opt-in Plaintiffs and Pennsylvania class members in Group 1, and approximately 345 individuals in Group 2 who did not originally join the case but accepted their settlement offers to join and participate in the settlement.
The case is Acevedo, et al. v. Brightview Landscapes, LLC (f/k/a/ The Brickman Group Ltd. LLC), No. 3:13-cv-02529-MEM (M.D. Pa.)
