Twiddy et al. v. Alfred Nickles Bakery, Inc.

What is this case about?

On September 15, 2014, Jeff Twiddy, Sr. started this lawsuit against Nickles Bakery on behalf of himself and other Route Sales truck drivers who have spent any part of a workweek since January 12, 2012, driving a vehicle that weighed 10,000 pounds or less. The lawsuit claims that Mr. Twiddy and other Nickles Bakery Route Sales truck drivers were improperly classified as exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act's ("FLSA") requirement to pay workers a rate equal to one and one half times their regular rate for each hour worked in excess of forty (40) in a workweek. In addition to unpaid overtime compensation, this lawsuit also seeks liquidated damages in an amount equal to the alleged unpaid overtime and attorneys' fees and costs.

Nickles Bakery denies Mr. Twiddy's allegations and asserts that it properly paid its employees consistent with its requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act. The Court has not yet decided who will win the lawsuit.
