Global Tel*Link Unpaid Overtime Settlement Notes

  • Ortega, et al. v. Global Tel*Link Corporation, et al.
  • Case No.BC636438
  • Pending in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles

Plaintiffs Antonio Ortega and Ken Hagans filed this class action lawsuit against Global Tel*Link and Cooper Communications alleging five California wage and hour claims:

  1. Requiring Service Technicians to work overtime but failing to record or pay them proper overtime wages
  2. Failing to pay wages on time
  3. Failing to provide accurate itemized wage statements
  4. Failing to properly record work hours and meal breaks; and
  5. Failing to provide Service Technicians with meal breaks and failing to extra wages when not relieved for said meal breaks

Global Tel*Link denies the allegations and says their wage and hour policies are compliant with both state and federal labor laws. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Global Tel*Link Unpaid Overtime Settlement website.
