Thaler and Daklin, et al v. GlobalTranz Enterprises, LLC
Case No. 2:21-cv-00204-JJT (District of Arizona)

On February 8, 2021, we filed an overtime lawsuit against GlobalTranz Enterprises, LLC (“GlobalTranz”). They assert claims on behalf of themselves and other similarly situated individuals, including Logistics Representatives, Inside Sales – Account Managers, Carrier Sales Representatives, Account Coordinators, LTL Representatives, or in similar job titles (collectively, “Logistics Representatives”).  GlobalTranz is a freight brokerage company specializing in LTL (less-than-truckload), full truckload, expedited and managed transportation solutions with a freight network that consists of over 25,000 shippers and more than 30,000 carriers.  GlobalTranz’ Logistics Representatives primarily coordinate and schedule pick-up and/or delivery appointments for assigned customers, and track and trace shipments across various modes of transit. The Logistics Representatives regularly work overtime hours and are paid a salary with no extra pay for their overtime hours. The Complaint alleges that as of approximately April 2019, GlobalTranz misclassified its Logistics Representatives as exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act’s (“FLSA”) overtime protections, and improperly denied them overtime pay.

Our firm has partnered with attorneys Benjamin L. Davis of The Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl in Baltimore, Maryland in representing the plaintiffs in this case.

Share

Am I eligible?

You are eligible to make a federal law claim in this case if you worked as a Logistics Representative, Inside Sale – Account Manager, Carrier Sales Representative, Account Coordinator, LTL Representative, or other position with similar titles and/or duties for GlobalTranz at any time between April of 2019 and the present, and were not paid an overtime premium for the hours you worked over 40 per week. 

Additional Information

Is This a Class Action? What Does that Mean?

This case is a potential collective action under federal law. The idea behind a collective action is that is allows one or more people to sue on behalf of themselves and other similarly situated people who have similar claims. In order to proceed as a group, though, the Court must certify the collective. Because we are in the early stages of the case, this has not happened yet, but we intend to seek the company’s agreement or file a motion at the appropriate time asking the Court to grant conditional certification.

Which Locations Are Included?

This case seeks to include all Logistics Representatives that work or have worked for GlobalTranz in any state anywhere across the country within the past three years. 

How Do I Join This Case?

In order make a claim in this case for your unpaid overtime under the FLSA, the federal law, you must complete a consent form and return it to our office. You can sign up electronically by clicking here.

What Time Frame Does This Case Cover?

The claim has what is called a statute of limitations, which allows workers to recover unpaid overtime wages within specific time periods.  Under federal law, the statute of limitation is two years back from when the worker signs up to join the lawsuit by completing and returning the written consent form referenced above. In this case, since we have reason to believe GlobalTranz reclassified its Logistics Representatives from hourly to salaried in approximately April of 2019, all Logistics Representatives that worked for the company at any time between then and the present are eligible to make a claim.

Do I Have to Pay Anything?

You do not have to pay anything if you join the lawsuit. We are handling this case on a contingency fee basis. This means we will only be paid if the lawsuit is successful in obtaining relief either through a settlement, award, or a final judgment, and that payment will only come out of that settlement, award, or final judgment.

How Do I Prove I Worked Overtime?

If you have records of the hours you worked, please preserve and keep them until we ask you for them. However, you do not need to have records of your work hours to make a claim for your overtime pay in this case. If GlobalTranz did not keep accurate time records, most courts will permit you to make a good-faith estimate of your work hours. Through this lawsuit, we will seek any records the company may have of your hours worked as well.

What About Retaliation?

It is against the law for an employer to retaliate against a person for joining a lawsuit to reclaim unpaid wages. If you currently work for GlobalTranz and you believe you may be the victim of retaliation for joining or participating in this lawsuit, contact the case clerk, Julia McGuire at (612) 256-3267 or jmcguire@nka.com immediately.
