Greyhound Bus Drivers Not Compensated for Overtime and Layover Time

Tuesday, May 24, 2011
California employment lawyers are currently researching a potential case involving Greyhound extra board drivers who are not properly compensated for their overtime, as well as for their time between trips.  Greyhound drivers are often asked to drive long distances at all hours of the day and night while bringing their passengers safely and efficiently to their destination.  But once the travelers have arrived, what happens to the bus drivers? They are usually hours away from home, stuck there until they receive their new assignment.  Drivers must rest and wait 9 hours before they can begin a new trip, and if after a certain amount of time passes the drivers still do not receive a new assignment, they receive layover pay for every hour after that.  However, it has come to the attention of California wage and hour lawyers that extra board drivers are not being accurately compensated for their layover time and overtime.

If you or someone you know is a Greyhound extra board driver and have not received the appropriate compensation for either overtime or time spent between trips, contact a California employment lawyer immediately to see if you have a claim.
