$113 Million Verdict Awarded to Missouri Corrections Workers Being Denied Overtime Pay by the MO Department of Corrections
Burger Law wins big for Missouri Correctional Workers who were repeatedly being denied pay for pre and post-shift work. On August 15th, 2018, a Cole County jury rendered a verdict for a class of Missouri Corrections officers against the Missouri Department of Corrections in the amount of $113,714,632. The front line Corrections Officers and Sergeants testified at trial that the Department of Corrections required them to perform pre and post-shift work but refused to pay them for it. The jury awarded all compensation requested by the Plaintiff class for the 11 year class time period to pay for the wages earned in pre and post-shift activity by these 13,000 class members. This verdict culminated years of litigation spearheaded by Gary Burger of Burger Law. Gary Burger stated, “I am proud to have been able to represent these hard working and honorable men and women corrections officers fight the Missouri Department of Correction’s dishonorable system.”
