Schlichting et al. v. Jamf Software, LLC
Court File No. 0:22-cv-01602 (U.S. District of Minnesota)

On June 17, 2022, a Business Development Representative (“BDR”) filed an overtime lawsuit against Jamf Software, LLC (“Jamf”). Jamf assists customers in their use of Apple products through the provision of a comprehensive management system for Apple macOS and iOS devices. The named plaintiff asserts individual claims and claims on behalf of other similarly situated BDRs. The Complaint alleges that a BDR’s job was to conduct outreach to potential buyers of Jamf’s products. The complaint further alleges that Jamf required BDRs to work overtime in order to complete all of their work and meet sales quotas but denied them overtime pay when they worked over forty (40) hours per week.

The plaintiff brought the case as a putative collective action under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and as a putative class under Minnesota wage laws seeking to recover unpaid overtime compensation, liquidated (double) damages, and other statutorily-permitted relief for himself and other BDRs.

The case is titled Schlichting, et al. v. Jamf Software, LLC, Case No. 0:22-cv-01602 (District of Minnesota).  Plaintiff is represented by Rachhana T. Srey and Clara Coleman of Nichols Kaster, PLLP, which has offices in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and San Francisco, California and Benjamin L. Davis III of the Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl in Baltimore, Maryland.

Am I eligible?

Because this lawsuit arises under both federal and state law, you may have a qualifying federal law claim, state law claim, or both federal and state law claims.

You may be eligible to make a claim under federal law if you worked over forty (40) hours per week for Jamf as a BDR and you were denied overtime pay.

You may be eligible to make a claim under state law if you worked over forty-eight (48) hours per week for Jamf in Minnesota within the past three years as a BDR and were denied overtime pay.

Additional Information

Is This a Class Action? What Does that Mean?

This case is both a potential collective action under federal law and a potential class action under Minnesota state law. This means that, depending on the type of claim you have, there may be a slightly different process for joining and participating in this suit.

Although the process and terminology may differ slightly, the idea behind both a class and collective action is the same: it allows one or more people to sue on behalf of themselves and other similarly situated people who have similar claims. To proceed as a group though, the Court must certify the class and/or 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 request the Court grant these certifications.

How Do I Join This Case?

To join others in making a claim for overtime compensation under federal law, you must complete a Plaintiff Consent form. This form will be filed with the Court. To complete and submit the form electronically, click here.

What Time Frame Does This Case Cover?

There is a time limit under the federal law called a statute of limitations that allows an employee to recover unpaid wages for hours worked within two years of joining by filing a consent form. If we can prove Jamf willfully violated the law, the statute of limitations may be extended to three years.

Do I Have to Pay Anything?

No, you will not have to pay us anything out of your own pocket.  We are handling this case on a contingency basis. This means we will only be paid if the lawsuit is successful in obtaining relief either through a settlement or an award, and that payment will only come out of that settlement or award. 

How Do I Prove the Overtime Hours I Worked?

If you have records relating to your work with Jamf, please keep them until we ask you for them.  However, you do not need to have records of your work hours to make a claim. If Jamf did not keep accurate time records, most courts will permit you to make a “good faith” estimate of your work hours.  Please ensure you do not destroy any documents or data you have that relate to your work as a BDR for Jamf.

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 suffer retaliation, you may have additional claims. If you work for Jamf and you believe you may be the victim of retaliation for joining this lawsuit, contact the case clerk, Christina Houston, at (612) 256-3238 or chouston@nka.com immediately.

How Long Will This Case Take?

The length of this kind of lawsuit varies from case to case, but they typically last one to three years.

Is There Money Available Now?

No. This is a pending lawsuit. There is no money currently available and there is no guarantee that you will receive money for participating in the lawsuit.

If you know of any Business Development Representatives who may be interested in making a claim for unpaid overtime, please inform them that they should contact the case clerk, Christina Houston, at (612) 256-3238 or chouston@nka.com to determine whether they may be eligible to make a claim.

    Business Development Representative Files Overtime Case Against Jamf Software, LLC

    On June 17, 2022, a Business Development Representative ("BDR) filed an overtime lawsuit against Jamf Software, LLC (“Jamf”).  Jamf assists customers in the use of Apple products through a comprehensive management system for Apple macOS and iOS devices. The named plaintiff asserts individual claims and claims on behalf of other similarly situated BDRs.  The Complaint alleges that a BDR’s job was to conduct outreach to potential buyers of Jamf’s products. The complaint further alleges that Jamf required BDRs to work overtime in order to complete all of their work and meet sales quotas but denied them overtime pay when they worked over forty (40) hours per week.

    The plaintiff brought the case as a putative collective action under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and putative class action under Minnesota wage law seeking to recover unpaid overtime compensation, liquidated (double) damages, and other statutorily-permitted relief for himself and other BDRs.

    Rachhana T. Srey, one of the plaintiff’s attorneys, stated, “despite being classified as eligible for overtime, JAMF did not pay BDRs the overtime compensation they deserved. Rather, JAMF encouraged unpaid overtime work by holding BDRs to strict sales quotas while instructing employees to not record time while permitting them to work unrecorded hours. These workers should be paid for this time.”

    The case is titled Schlichting, et al. v. Jamf Software, LLC, Case No.  (District of Minnesota) 0:22-cv-01602.  Plaintiff is represented by Rachhana T. Srey and Clara Coleman of Nichols Kaster, PLLP, which has offices in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and San Francisco, California and Benjamin L. Davis III of the Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl in Baltimore, Maryland.
