    Former Nashville UPS employee sues company, claims no pay for 'hundreds of hours' overtime - Fox 17

    A former United Parcel Service (UPS) employee in Nashville is suing the company over claims he wasn't paid for "hundreds of hours for which he should have been paid overtime."

    Filed in Middle Tennessee District Court on Wednesday, former package handler and part-time supervisor Nicholas Thompson's suit claims the company was in violation of federal law during his time at a Davidson County distribution center from August 2016 until December 2018.

    According to the suit, Thompson was working as a part-time supervisor, a role slated for 27.5 hours per week but Thompson states he would often work 60 or more per week. Thompson's suit also includes his supervisor at the time, claiming the supervisor "implemented the policy of not paying minimum wages or overtime pay to Plaintiff and similarly-situated employees."
