Extradition Agent Worker Claims
If you have worked as an extradition agent or prisoner transportation guard or officer and were paid a day rate or salary but no overtime for hours worked over forty in a workweek, you may be entitled to overtime wages.
Current and former prisoner transportation extradition agents were recently granted conditional class certification in a lawsuit seeking payment of unpaid overtime wages against their employer.
Workers who transport inmates from various locations throughout the United States as extradition agents are non-exempt employees who are entitled to overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) for all hours worked over forty (40) hours in a workweek. Payment of a salary or day rate does not excuse an employer from paying overtime wages.
