A class action lawsuit has been filed against Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park after three employees reported they did not receive proper pay for overtime hours worked.
Records show the lawsuit was filed with the U.S. District Court Eastern District of Arkansas on Oct. 25, listing Emily Dey, Samantha McBride and Madison Barnhill as the plaintiffs against Conway Urban Air LLC and UATP Management LLC.
According to the complaint, the three women said they worked at Urbain Air in Conway "at any time within a three-year period" prior to filing the lawsuit against the trampoline park. The employees were paid hourly. However, the plaintiffs claim they were not paid the proper overtime wages set forth by the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Because the business brings in more than $500,000 in revenue annually, it would fall subject to FLSA, according to the complaint.
The FLSA also mandates that any employee who works more than 40 hours in a workweek must be paid "not less than" time and a half for all overtime worked.
The women who filed the suit say they were not compensated for overtime hours.
"Despite the entitlement of Plaintiffs to overtime payments under the FLSLA, Defendants failed to pay [employees] an overtime rate of one and one-half (1.5) times their regular rates of pay for all hours worked over forty (40) in each one-week period," the complaint reads in part. "[The company's] failure to pay [employees] overtime wages owed was willful ... [and the defendants] are liable to Plaintiffs for monetary damages, liquidated damages, and costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees, for all violations that occurred within the three (3) years prior to the filing of this complaint."
According to the complaint, as many as 40 employees could be affected by this alleged lack of pay.
The employees are requesting they be paid "in an amount equal to all unpaid overtime compensation" as well as for all attorney's feels and other costs associated with filing the lawsuit.
As of press time Tuesday, neither company had responded to the claims against them.
