DALLAS, TEXAS: Earlier this week, three over-the-road truck drivers of Stevens Transport, Inc. filed a class and collective action lawsuit asserting that the trucking company violated the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) by paying them under the federal minimum wage for all hours worked. Swartz Swidler, LLC, an employment law firm in Cherry Hill, New Jersey (NJ) which focuses on employment law with an emphasis on wage and hour litigation, represents the truck drivers in the action.
