BEALL V. TYLER TECHNOLOGIES INC., AND EDP ENTERPRISES, INC. OVERTIME LAWSUIT

SUMMARY OF THE CASE:

Beall, et al. v. Tyler Technologies, Inc. and EDP Enterprises, Inc., Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division, Case No. 2:08-cv-422, assigned to the Honorable Judge,  T. John Ward

This collective action was filed by a group of former Tyler Technologies, Inc. and /or EDP Enterprises, Inc. employees seeking recovery of overtime wages on their behalf and on behalf of all other employees that worked in their job positions or similar job positions since July 13, 2006, and were not paid time and a half for all hours they worked over 40 hours  in a work week.   All employees that work/worked for Tyler Technologies, Inc., EDP Enterprises, Inc. or another predecessor company of Tyler Technologies, Inc. in one of the following job categories since July 13, 2006, may be eligible to join the suit and participate in any recovery.

The job categories of the class are as follows:

1. TELEPHONE AND REMOTE COMPUTER SUPPORT EMPLOYEES

2. COMPUTER HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE SET UP &     MAINTENANCE EMPLOYEES

3. IMPLEMENTATION EMPLOYEES

4. SALES SUPPORT EMPLOYEES

5. QUALITY ASSURANCE EMPLOYEES

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires covered employers to pay employees that perform primarily non-exempt duties a  premium of 1.5 times their regular rate of pay for hours worked in excess of 40 in a work week.  Plaintiffs contend that these companies improperly classified workers as exempt from this requirement, and in doing so denied employees their overtime pay, violating the FLSA.  Additionally, it is the employer's responsibility to maintain the hours its employees work. Therefore, the fact that you do not have documentation or records of the overtime hours you worked does not prohibit your participation or your right to recover in this lawsuit.
