National Debt Relief Employees, Sue for Unpaid Overtime

By on June 8, 2016

National Debt Relief has just been sued by some of its former employees who assert they were not properly compensated. This suit brings back memories of similar sorts of suits from the high flying debt settlement days in Texas. Some of those cases are still ongoing years later.

The suit was filed on June 3, 2016 and was filed against National Debt Relief, Daniel Tilipman, and Alex Kleyner.

The complaint attempts to be recognized as a class action case, I suppose on behalf of all similarly situated National Debt Relief employees.

The complaint says the principal offices of National Debt Relief (NDR) are at 11 Broadway, Suite 1600, New York, NY. It states NDR employees “hundreds of Certified Debt Specialists and other employees performing similar job functions.” It later says, “there are at least 300 debt specialists, debt negotiators, and employees performing similar job duties who have been denied overtime compensation while working for Defendants.”

While not ever employee had a similar experience, the complaint plaintiff, Luis Alvarez, Jr., states that while his schedule “fluctuate throughout his employment” he had to put in additional time. The complaint states, “In addition to these hours, when Plaintiff did not meet his performance goals, his supervisors strongly encouraged Plaintiff to work additional Saturdays.”

It looks like another issue is the missing office chair.

Without contacting NDR, I will resume they will deny the claims made.

These type of cases are always a good opportunity for all debt relief companies to review their policies regarding independent contractors and overtime compensation.
