TDS Telecom Service, LLC

No Company is Too Big to Play Fair.

We represent a former Network Specialist in the above-referenced lawsuit against TDS Telecom. The Complaint alleges the primary job duties of a Network Specialist (I, II, or Senior) constitute work that is non-exempt from overtime pay. By way of example, Plaintiff’s work duties included communicating with TDS Telecom’s contracted vendors and construction companies regarding project design plans, entering design data for cost auto-calculation, obtaining the necessary permits for construction, and submitting project plans to Defendant’s managers and oversight board for approval. The Complaint further alleges TDS Telecom assigned Network Specialists heavy workloads and required them to work overtime in order to complete all their work but failed to pay overtime pay for the overtime hours worked. Instead of paying overtime for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week, TDS Telecom pays Network Specialists a salary and treats them as ineligible for overtime pay.

If, within the last three (3) years, you have worked for TDS Telecom as a Network Specialist in any state and have ever worked overtime hours without receiving overtime pay, you may be eligible to join this case. If you are interested in making a claim for unpaid overtime pay, you may electronically sign a Plaintiff Consent Form HERE.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q:Am I Eligible?


    You may be eligible to make a federal law claim in this case if you worked for TDS Telecom at any time within the past three years as a Network Specialist and were not paid overtime for the hours you worked in excess of 40 hours per week.

  • Q:How Do I Join This Case?


    To make a claim in this action under federal law, you must complete a Consent Form and return it to us immediately for filing with the Court.

  • Q:Which Locations Are Included?


    This case seeks to include all Network Specialists who work or have worked for TDS Telecom anywhere in the country within the past three years.

  • Q: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 limitations is two years back from when the consent form you return to us is filed. If we can prove TDS Telecom intentionally or recklessly violated the law, then the statute of limitations may be extended to three years. The Colorado state law claim asserted in this case has a three-year statute of limitations.

  • Q:Do I Have To Pay Anything?


    You do not have to pay anything to our firm if you join the lawsuit. 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 a final judgment, and that payment will only come out of that settlement or final judgment.

  • Q:How Do I Prove I Worked Overtime?


    Where the employer does not keep accurate time records, most courts permit the employee to make a good faith estimate of overtime hours. You do not need to have proof of the hours you worked and the court will generally accept a good faith estimate of your hours.

  • Q:How Long Will This Case Take?


    The length of this kind of lawsuit varies from case to case. They typically last one to two years.

  • Q:What About Retaliation?
