The usural and cutomary business hours for a hospital is 9am -5pm.clinics & doctors office has daytime business hours for the sales rep to show and tell/sell the products. How did the overtime occur? How did the attorney access the database of these company/industry to get these employees address? Did personnel release the employee address, well, who is the snitch? Is "Bob"the supervisor, who is a great guy, just sign off on all overtime, has lots of co-worker friends,who pays for his drinks while he party a lot at the bar? OR- Is it possiable, one co-worker says he did not get paid for a couple of o/t hours of work, no one check to verify this info, and put thru the payment, he told his friends its easy, to get paid for overtime, his friends told his friends and so on..until these is power, in numbers of 2500 people saying, where is my overtime pay? Here is an attorney that feels ..well $100 million should cover the cost?!!
People/Places like Bernie madoff, Aig, Enron, lehman brothers, Bear Stern, educated guys who closed hugh business based on lies, deception, embezzlement greed, stolen money, network of friends, conspirecies..MERCK is spiralling down hill..who put Merck on WALL STREET and brought in the ponzi schemers??!!!
