On March 8, 2018, a former KeyPoint Government Solutions, Inc. employee filed a nationwide collective action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado to recover unpaid overtime wages. KeyPoint Government Solutions, Inc. is the largest provider of investigative services and background screening for the Federal Government and also provides such services to the intelligence and civilian sectors.
The Plaintiff brings her claims on behalf of herself and other Field Investigators, Background Investigators, or other positions with similar job duties, who worked for KeyPoint in any location across the country. Plaintiff alleges that KeyPoint violated the federal Fair Labor Standards Act when it failed to pay her and the other similarly situated Investigators for the overtime hours they worked. The Complaint also alleges that KeyPoint failed to maintain accurate time records of the hours Investigators worked and knew that Investigators were working unpaid overtime hours.
Plaintiff’s attorney Rachhana T. Srey of Nichols Kaster, PLLP explains, “Given the KeyPoint’s unrealistic productivity requirements, it is not surprising that Investigators worked unpaid overtime hours. An employer cannot gain a competitive edge by suffering and permitting its employees to work overtime hours without properly paying them.”
Plaintiffs are represented by Rachhana T. Srey and Paige C. Fishman of Nichols Kaster, PLLP (Minneapolis, MN) and Benjamin L. Davis, III and George E. Swegman of The Law Offices of Peter T. Nichol (Baltimore, MD). The case is entitled, Brayman v. KeyPoint Government Solutions, Inc., 1:18-cv-00550 (District of Colorado).
