Ortez v. United Parcel Service Inc.

In May 2017, we filed a Collective and Class Action Complaint on behalf of a seasonal UPS worker for UPS’s violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and Colorado’s wage and hour law. We allege that UPS failed to pay our client and other seasonal employees, for all of the hours they worked by making them spend hours a day of unpaid time loading their trucks before they received compensation. The lawsuit also claims that the employer retaliated against our Client in violation of the FLSA by terminating his employment and failing to hire him on a permanent basis because our client complained about the employer’s pay policies and practices.

In September 2018, the U.S. District Court conditionally certified our case as a collective action, and authorized notice to potentially-aggrieved employees. The Court’s order can be viewed here.
