- Nieman Printing Inc. Violates Overtime Provisions
The U.S. Department of Labor said Dallas-based Nieman Printing Inc. has paid $96,335 in overtime back wages to 101 employees following a department investigation.
The company violated the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, according to the Labor Department. In addition to the overtime wages, civil penalties totaled $26,000.
This company knowingly used illegal employment tactics to avoid paying workers overtime, said Cynthia Watson, regional administrator for the Wage and Hour Division in the Southwest, said in a statement.
No one answered the phone at Neimen Printing.
Nieman agreed to comply fully with the FLSA, and paid back wages and civil penalties in full, according to the Labor Department.
An investigation conducted by the divisions Dallas office found that Niemen Printing required employees to record hours worked on two different time clocks at the same site, but did not combine those hours to determine when overtime was due. As a result, employees did not receive overtime pay of 1.5 times their regular wage for working more than 40 hours a week.
Investigators found that employees were under contract to Niemen by two separate staffing agencies at the same time, with hours worked Monday through Wednesday charged to one agency and hours worked by the same employees Thursday through Sunday charged to the other agency. Investigators also found that some Niemen salaried employees were wrongly classified as exempt from receiving overtime when they were due overtime pay.
Neimens website says the company opened in 1979. It provides printing services for everything from brochures and pamphlets to corporate reports and marketing materials as well as turn-key mailing and fulfillment services.

I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
