Cerner Unpaid Overtime Settlement Notes

  • Fred Speer, et al. v. Cerner Corporation
  • Case No. 4:14-cv-00204-FJG
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri

Plaintiffs Fred Speer and Mike McGuirk filed this wage and hour class action lawsuit against Cerner alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and Missouri state law.

Specifically the class action lawsuit alleges that Cerner failed to pay overtime wages, calculated overtime wages incorrectly, and did not comply with paying salaried, non-exempt employees overtime on a fluctuating workweek basis (half-time overtime instead of time-and-a-half overtime).

Cerner denies these allegations and does not admit to any wrongdoing in agreeing to settle this case. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Cerner Overtime Settlement website.

Class members who wish to exclude themselves or object to the settlement must do so by April 30, 2018. Class members wish to participate in the settlement must submit a claim form by April 30, 2018. Note: Cerner will not be informed of the identity of those who choose to participate.
