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.
