The United States Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division has found that Cintas Fire Protection Services violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay wages to fire sprinkler installers and fire sprinkler testers for hours they worked. As a result, a settlement was reached in which Cintas will pay more than $1.3 million to 81 of their workers in Northern California. This came as a result of an investigation that determined Cintas was not paying their fire service technicians for hours that they worked that were not billable to Cintas's clients, such as completing reports, submitting timesheets and sending work-related emails.
Felony charges are serious, and can have a negative impact on a person's life. A criminal conviction can impact many different areas of life, such as employment or reputation, even if the sentence does not result in a prison term. Two West Virginia residents are facing drug charges after being accused of planning to deliver drugs at a local jail.
When causing a car accident, many individuals become the subject of a subsequent investigation. There are countless ways in which a collision can occur, and distracted and drunk driving are believed to be a couple of the most prevalent. A West Virginia man is being accused of driving under the influence after a recent car accident involving a police cruiser.
Clearly, being convicted of a felony has negative consequences. Those who are facing this possibility typically seek to defend against the charges, but having little knowledge of the criminal justice system can make it challenging. Seeking legal advice is typically the best choice in these circumstances. This may be the case for two men in West Virginia who were recently arrested and are now facing multiple drug charges.
