Summary of Investigation: Welcome to the webpage maintained by Shepherd, Finkelman, Miller & Shah, LLP ("SFMS") for its investigation of certain employment practices by the school bus provider First Student, Inc ("First Student"). Specifically, SFMS is investigating claims that First Student violated federal and state wage and hour laws by denying workers the correct compensation for certain job requirements. First Student allegedly failed to pay employees for duties including time spent putting on safety vests, waiting for route assignments and time spent completing legally required post-trip inspections. Further allegations include workers not being adequately paid for their routes because payments are based on computer generated estimates but do not take into account traffic or other delays.
