Tradesmen International Unpaid Travel Time Claims

We’re standing up for employees who were not paid for all hours worked

Hourly workers deserve to be paid for all hours worked, and under some circumstances, that includes travel time. Unfortunately, some employers don’t follow the law – which means workers get shortchanged.

Nilges Draher LLC is looking to file a potential lawsuit against Tradesmen International for failure to pay for time spent traveling to and from worksites that require an overnight stay.  If you are a current or former Tradesmen employee who traveled to overnight jobs, you may be entitled to recover your unpaid wages. Call 234.401.9162 or fill out the contact form on this page to learn more.

How Tradesmen allegedly violated federal wage and hour laws

Under federal wage and hour laws, while your regular home-to-work commute does not typically have to be paid, travel time is considered working time under some circumstances. Specifically, if overnight travel cuts across your ordinary work hours – even on non-working days – then that time should be paid. For example, if you normally work 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and you need to leave home at 3 p.m. on a Sunday to travel to a job site, then you should be paid for the three hours on Sunday between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.

We believe that Tradesmen failed to follow the law, resulting in unpaid wages for numerous employees, including but not limited to:

  • Operators
  • Carpenters
  • Construction workers
  • Electricians
  • HVAC technicians
  • Laborers
  • Plumbers
  • Roofers

If you had to travel to worksites that required you to stay overnight but weren’t paid for travel time, then you may be entitled to compensation for your unpaid travel time. We can help.

If you worked at Tradesmen International, contact us to see if we can help you recover your unpaid wages.

Our wage and hour attorneys are actively reviewing cases on behalf of Tradesmen employees who were not paid for their time spent traveling to and from jobs that required an overnight stay.  If you are a current or former Tradesmen employee in this situation, we would be honored to listen to your story and explain your legal options.
