Craig & Sam Sue KHTE For Back Pay
January 23, 2012 at 11:42 AM (PT)
Former CRAIN MEDIA GROUP Top 40/Mainstream KHTE (K-HITS 96.5)/LITTLE ROCK, AR morning duo KARLA MOORE and CRAIG MORRISON, known on-air as CRAIG & SAM, filed a lawsuit against their former employer in federal court, claiming they weren't paid for working overtime, ARKANSASBUSINESS.COM reports. They are suing for back pay and unspecified damages.
Their attorney, AMBER SCHUBERT, asserted that fair labor standards require that everyone must be paid time-and-a-half for work done more than 40 hours in a week, "unless they meet one of several exemptions. You start from the premise that they are entitled to overtime" -- including salaried employees who don't hold a supervisory post and can hire or fire other staffers.
KHTE management has yet to publicly respond to the lawsuit.
