A group of industrial workers retained Mr. Shoemaker to assert claims of unpaid overtime against their employer. This case dealt primarily with the workers not being paid for donning and doffing special equipment at the beginning and end of their shifts. The equipment was critical to the safe and effective performance of their positions. The employer had not been paying them for the time necessary to don and doff the equipment. Mr. Shoemaker obtained a settlement for his clients in the amount of $750,000.00.
