Peloton Interactive Subject Of Overtime Pay Lawsuit
On January 28, 2022, a “collective action”/”class action” complaint was filed in United States District Court, Southern District of New York, against Peloton Interactive, Inc. (“Peloton”) to remedy alleged violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and New York Labor Law.
According to the complaint, the Plaintiff and other similarly situated employees were employed by Peloton as non-exempt, Inside Sales Representatives (“ISRs”). The “Inside Sales Representative” title, according to the complaint, collectively refers to the various titles Peloton used to describe the inside sales position, including “Inside Sales Representative,” “Account Executive, Inside Sales,” and “Team Lead, Inside Sales.”
Peloton allegedly violated the FLSA by failing to pay Plaintiff and other similarly situated Inside Sales Representatives overtime compensation at the rate of one and one-half times their regular rate of pay for the hours they work over 40 in a workweek. By unlawfully failing to pay overtime, Peloton, according to the complaint, also violated New York Labor Law Articles 6 and 19 by failing to pay Plaintiff and other members of the New York class at the prescribed rate of one and one-half times the employees’ regular wage rates for all overtime hours worked.
The lawsuit seeks to recover the unpaid wages owed to Plaintiff and all other similarly situated employees of Defendant Peloton (current and former employees) who worked at any of Peloton’s locations at any time during the relevant period before this Complaint was filed up to the present.
The complaint alleges upon information and belief that Defendant Peloton employed in excess of one hundred ISRs throughout the relevant statute of limitations periods, including, but not limited to, other individuals employed as an “Inside Sales Representative,” an “Account Executive, Inside Sales,” and as a “Team Lead, Inside Sales.” The group also includes ISRs employed by Defendant Peloton throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
PELOTON INSIDE SALES REPRESENTATIVES, OR OTHERS WHO PERFORMED SUBSTANTIALLY SIMILAR DUTIES TO AN INSIDE SALES REPRESENTATIVE, SUCH AS ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE, INSIDE SALES, OR TEAM LEAD, INSIDE SALES, WHO BELIEVE THEY WERE NOT PAID PROPER WAGES OR OVERTIME, MISCLASSIFIED AS EXEMPT FROM OVERTIME, OR FINANCIALLY HARMED BY OTHER EMPLOYER WAGE AND HOUR VIOLATIONS, ARE ENCOURAGED TO COMPLETE THE FORM ABOVE ON THE RIGHT OR EMAIL [email protected] FOR A FREE, NO-OBLIGATION EVALUATION OF POTENTIAL LEGAL CLAIMS.
