Law360, Philadelphia (August 13, 2012, 6:39 PM EDT) -- Three Pittsburgh firefighters brought a putative class action against the city in Pennsylvania federal court Monday, alleging they were not properly compensated for overtime hours under U.S. Department of Labor standards for emergency responders enacted in 2004.
The suit — brought by Capt. Edmund Farley, Battalion Chief Robert Cox and Deputy Chief Harry Scherer — claims that the workers do not meet the threshold for overtime exemption under the Fair Labor Standards Act and that Pittsburgh has failed to properly pay them.
