Cintas Fire Service Technicians to Receive $1.3 Million Settlement for Unpaid Wages

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.

If you currently work or have previously worked as a fire service technician, fire sprinkler installer or fire sprinkler tester, you may also be entitled to the unpaid wages like the Cintas employees of Northern California. Fire service companies are required to comply with state and federal laws to pay their employees wages for all hours worked, including non-billable hours and overtime. For a free, confidential review of your wages, call my law office at 304-914-3577 to determine whether you may have a claim against any of your employers for unpaid wages.
