We’ve filed twelve unpaid overtime compensation class action cases against five different UAV companies.
We’ve had the honor of collecting millions of dollars for close to one thousand UAV employees around the country including UAV Field Service Representatives, Field Service Engineers, Pilots, AVO, AVP, Payload Operators, Mission Commanders, Operators, Instructors, Technicians, Mechanics, Trainees, Logisticians and Maintainers.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) is the federal law that requires employers to pay time and a half for all hours worked in excess of 40 per workweek. Employees who are classified as exempt are not entitled to overtime compensation. Whereas, employees who are non-exempt are entitled to overtime compensation. Our cases primarily argue that these companies have misclassified the employees as exempt and, as such, have not paid them overtime compensation as required by the law. We file lawsuits to recover those unpaid wages.
Our goal is to make our class members whole for their losses.

The Drone Lawyer Overtime Compensation Practice Group focuses solely on issues dealing with wages and overtime compensation for UAV employees.  This practice group has developed a niche within the UAV industry … and is a leader in the legal effort to secure proper overtime compensation and wages for UAV employees across the country.

We know who the UAV companies are, we know how they operate and we’re not afraid to challenge their pay practices.  For years, we’ve fought the UAV companies and have succeeded in collecting significant back pay awards for the hundreds of members in the many class action cases we’ve filed.

We know the UAV industry.  We know the UAV companies.  We know how these companies pay their employees for CONUS and OCONUS work.

These companies create many mazes to avoid paying proper overtime compensation … we get through them.

If you’re a UAV Field Service Representative, Field Service Engineer, Pilot, AVO, AVP, Payload Operator, Mission Commander, Operator, Instructor, Technician, Mechanic, Trainee, Logistician, Maintainers or other similar UAV employee … we know your work and we’re prepared and ready to speak with you about your current or former work situation.
