It was reported in the Miami Herald that a former employee of a foreclosure mill law firm in Tampa Florida sued this week for overtime violations when she and others were forced to work “off the clock”. Florida Default Law Group allowed for five hours of overtime per week, but to keep up with the flood of foreclosure cases, Denise Vasquez alleges that she was routinely required to work even more hours without the federally mandated time and a half required by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The case was initially filed in Hillsborough County but was transferred to federal court under the FLSA. Florida Default Law Group remains under investigation by the state attorney general’s office for filing misleading documents in foreclosure cases. Another foreclosure mill law firm with over 1000 employees, Law Offices of David J. Stern, P.A., has practically shut down due in large part to the depositions of employees and other information gleaned in the pending attorney general investigation and the pulling of files by Fannie Mae and other major lenders or servicers.
