Drivers Who Drive Vehicles Weighing 10,000 pounds or Less Some of the Time

Many companies do not pay overtime wages to drivers who drive vehicles over 10,000 pounds because they claim that the drivers are exempt from the federal overtime law. While drivers may be exempt if they only drive vehicles over 10,000 pounds, Getman, Sweeney & Dunn believes that drivers who drive vehicles weighing 10,000 pounds or less some of the time are not exempt. Those drivers should be paid overtime for all the hours they work, including hours spent driving larger vehicles. Moreover, these drivers are due overtime regardless of whether they are paid by the hour, with a salary, or by the mile. If you have worked as a driver of vehicles weighing 10,000 pounds or less and were not paid overtime premium pay for hours over forty, contact Getman, Sweeney & Dunn to learn about your rights.
