Outten & Golden LLP represents a group of Loadsmart sales employees. Loadsmart sells logistics services and software solutions to its clients, which include shippers and carriers nationwide. Plaintiffs are three former Loadsmart sales employees who brought this case as a collective action under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and a class action under Illinois and New York law on behalf of themselves and other former and current Account Sales Representatives, Carrier Sales Representatives, Digital Sales Representatives, and Sales Development Representatives (“Sales Representatives”).
On June 12, 2023, Plaintiffs filed their collective and class action complaint in the Northern District of Illinois, Burr v. Loadsmart, Inc., Case No. 1:23-cv-03708.
Plaintiffs allege that Sales Representatives perform primarily non-exempt sales-related tasks, including prospecting and contacting potential carrier and shipper clients and making sales of Loadsmart’s logistics services and software solutions. Plaintiffs claim that Loadsmart misclassified Sales Representatives as exempt from overtime protections and failed to pay Sales Representatives for overtime hours they worked.
In this action, Plaintiffs seek unpaid overtime wages and other relief on behalf of themselves and other similarly situated Sales Representatives.
