Employees sue sheriff’s office over pay

Employees of the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office filed aclass-action lawsuit against their employer in federal court Wednesday, alleging that they weren’t paid for all the time they worked.

The suit also says employees weren’t compensated at the rates required by the Metro Pay Plan, which governs compensation for civil service workers. Metro government is also named as a defendant in the suit.

“Just like all of Metro’s employees, those workers who run our city’s jails deserve to be paid in accordance with the law,” said David Garrison, a partner at Nashville law firm Barrett Johnston, which is representing the employees.
