Bristol TN Comp Time Suit
Bristol, Tennessee is being sued for violating the Fair Labor Standard Act. Two women are claiming that the city illegally implemented a compensatory time off system. A former and current dispatcher brought the suit against the city. Cynthia Allison and Mandy Hall both say they worked on a rotating two-week schedule where one week has a 36-hour work week and the next is a 48-hour week. The ladies claim they often worked more than hours without receiving pay for overtime hours. Instead, they say the city banked the hours in their long week, then applied it as regular hours during their shortest work week. The women say the decision was not mutual, something the FLSA requires before offering the compensatory time off. (CC)
