Corporations compensate their CEOs handsomely, but sometimes fail to pay their hourly employees overtime. Fortunately, federal and state laws prohibit such unfair treatment. General Electric was recently sued for allegedly requiring its service technicians to work before and after their shifts, as well as during lunch, without paying them time-and-a-half. Whether servicing their vehicles, traveling to and from jobs, or logging onto GE’s computer system from home, these technicians claim to have been intimidated by their supervisors into not accounting for their time.
