Smithsonian Institution FLSA Overtime Grievance Status
In November of 2015, your Union, AFGE Local 2463, filed a grievance against the Smithsonian Institution on behalf of all bargaining unit employees. The Grievance alleged violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), a federal law that protects the rights of American workers.
The Law Offices of Snider and Associates, as the legal representatives for the Union, are working hard for the bargaining unit employees to ensure that their rights under federal law are upheld. As part of the process, we have been busily contacting Smithsonian employees about their job duties and how much unpaid overtime they have worked.
The Union is currently gathering information from Smithsonian employees and requesting data from the Agency to determine damages due to the bargaining unit and to prepare for hearings.
