Customer Service Representatives in the Trucking Industry
Many trucking companies use customer service representatives (“CSRs”) to enter orders, track freight, and keep accounts updated. Some of these companies classify their CSRs as exempt from state and federal overtime requirements under the “Administrative Exemption.” As a result, these CSRs work overtime without receiving the overtime wages required by law. Getman, Sweeney & Dunn believes that CSRs are often misclassified because their job duties do not meet the requirements of the Administrative Exemption. Even though a CSR is paid a salary, the CSR may still be entitled to overtime pay. If you have worked for a trucking company as a CSR or in a similar capacity and were not paid overtime premium pay for hours over forty, Contact Getman Sweeney Dunn to learn about your rights.
