- 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.

My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
