Wyndham Vacation Resorts Inc. Pays $1.5 Million Settlement in Overtime Wage Dispute

Nov 8, 2017

Wyndham Vacation Resorts Inc. asked a Wisconsin federal judge to approve a $1.5 million settlement with their employer over wage disputes.

In their lawsuit, the employees claimed that the time-share developer required its employees to work off the clock without receiving overtime pay. According to sales representative Thomas Bitner, Wyndham allegedly forced employees to clock out while closing sales with potential customers in order to prevent their hours from exceeding 40 hours per week.

“The class members’ response to the settlement has been positive, with no class members submitting an exclusion or objection,” the motion said. “Given that this case has proceeded through four years of hotly contested litigation and was being prepared for trial, this result is of great benefit to the class considering the risks of nonrecovery had the case gone to trial.”

Wyndham, the largest time-share developer in the world with more than 185 resorts in countries across the globe, previously attempted to argue that the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was not created to provide salespeople in white collar jobs with additional compensation. When that argument failed to gain traction, they attempted to get the class decertified, which was denied by a judge.
