INTRODUCTION
        
    This case was filed by Plaintiffs Jason Anderson, Willie Davis and Shane Malaspina on June 7, 2006 in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Alabama.  The Plaintiffs have alleged in their complaint that their former employer, Cinram, violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. §216, et seq. by failing to pay them overtime for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a work week.  The claims by Anderson and the other Plaintiffs involve how Cinram rounded the time of employees, as opposed to paying them for all time shown on their time clock entries.  The law allows an employer to round the time backwards and forwards to the nearest five minutes, so long as an employee is properly paid for all time worked over a period of time.  Plaintiffs in this action maintain that Cinram rounded for its benefit and not for the benefit of the employee, resulting in the Plaintiffs being underpaid compared to time actually shown on their time clock 90% of the time.  Since filing of the lawsuit, and before the Court required Cinram to produce a list of affected employees, four additional Plaintiffs have opted into this action.  Notice has now been sent to thousands of current and former employees of Cinram, who may have been similarly affected by the time clock/payroll practices of Cinram, as alleged in this lawsuit in order to give them an opportunity to join this lawsuit as well.
 
    To the extent that you worked for Cinram at any time from January 18, 2004 to the present, and worked over forty hours in a work week and were not paid 1.5 times your regular hourly rate for all hours worked in excess of forty.  The following are frequently asked questions about eligibility for participation in the lawsuit, as well as for questions related to the lawsuit.
