BALDWYN, Miss. (WTVA) - Five Baldwyn police officers filed a lawsuit in federal court citing overtime violations.
The lawsuit states the city violated federal overtime laws and state law by not paying the officers the legally required overtime premium and unpaid straight time.
The lawsuit states the city deducted time worked from time sheets and by failing to pay police officers for all hours worked.
The Memphis law firm, Donati Law, said they will hold the City of Baldwyn accountable for the officers who keep Baldwyn safe and put their lives on the line every day.
The officers are seeking unpaid wages and damages.
