CajunCeltic. LLC Diakon, SLS, Sears Logistics Refusal to pay, 1099 miscategorization, violation of MODOT regulations RIVERSIDE Missouri
I started working for Cajun Celtic, LLC on May 12th, 2014. At the time I was hired I was told I would be working Monday-Friday every week and every 6 weeks I would work on a Saturday. I would work from 6 am to between 3pm and 5pm every day and my pay would be $100 a day, getting paid weekly. I had to pay for a background check and DOT physical/drug test and was promised reimbursement after a month of employment. I was also under the impression that I would be an employee of the company (on a W-2) but later I was told I was just a contractor (1099).
I started my employment on May 12th 2014 and ended it June 12th, 2014. I received payment on May 30th, 2014 for the week of May 12th-May 17th. I received $600. On June 6th, I was compensated another $560 for the week of May 19th to May 24th. I never received payment for the background check/physical as promised. I was required to work every Saturday in the duration of my employment. I was told if I didn’t come in on those Saturdays then I would no longer be employed.
I was not compensated for time worked between May 27th to June 12th and Cajun Celtic, LLC told me they refuse to pay me. I worked well past the 3pm-5pm off time everyday as I was promised. We usually got off work around 10pm, sometimes later. I also worked 15, 16 hour days from my first date of employment onward. As per MODOT regulations, drivers are not to work more than 12 hours a day. It is also a requirement for drivers to be “off duty” for 10 hours between shifts. Cajun Celtic, LLC refused to follow either of these guidelines.
Although I was compensated for the first two weeks of my employment, I do not believe that I was compensated fairly. I was forced to work an average of 5 hours longer a day than originally told and I was never paid overtime or offered any other incentive other than “getting to keep my job” Being paid $100 a day for a 16 or so hour day does not even equate minimum wage. It is my belief that I never should have been characterized as a contractor (and not an employee) in the first place. I have still not been paid for three weeks work, in which time I worked a total of 231.75 hours.
