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 in court against GlobalTranz Enterprises, LLC (“GlobalTranz”). Plaintiffs asserted 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 others in similar job titles (collectively, “Logistics Representatives”). 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.

We have since reached an agreement with GlobalTranz that Logistics Representatives who make a claim for overtime pay will not be required to go to court, but rather, can go through a less-formal process called arbitration. We are still accepting new claims for overtime pay from Logistics Representatives anywhere in the country who worked overtime hours for which they were not paid time-and-a-half.

Our firm is partnering with attorney Benjamin L. Davis of The Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl in Baltimore, Maryland.

Type of Case

Unpaid Overtime

Share

Am I eligible?

You are eligible to make a claim if you worked as a Logistics Representative, Inside Sales – Account Manager, Carrier Sales Representative, Account Coordinator, LTL Representative, or other position with similar title 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

Which Locations Are Included?

Logistics Representatives who work or have worked for GlobalTranz in any state anywhere across the country within the past three years may make a claim for unpaid overtime wages.  

How Do I Join?

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 timeframe does this matter cover?

There is 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 by completing and returning the written consent form referenced above. 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 to make a claim. We are handling these matters on a contingency fee basis. This means we will only be paid if we are 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. If GlobalTranz did not keep accurate time records, you are permitted to make a good-faith estimate of your work hours.  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 making a claim for unpaid wages. If you currently work for GlobalTranz and you believe you may be the victim of retaliation for joining, contact the case clerk, Julia McGuire at (612) 256-3267 or jmcguire@nka.com immediately.

How Long Will This Case Take?

Length of arbitration varies, but can typically last one to two years.

Is There Money Available Now?

No. These matters are ongoing. There is no money currently available and there is no guarantee that you will receive money.

How Can I Help?
