Officers to Get $6.7 Million for Overtime

November 07, 2002

The City Council agreed to pay $6.7 million Wednesday to settle a lawsuit that accused the Los Angeles Police Department of failing to pay overtime.

The settlement, approved on a 9-1 vote in closed session, will go to more than 500 officers who claimed the LAPD violated the federal Fair Labor Standards Act by not paying overtime.

Payments for some officers may reach six digits, depending upon how much overtime they worked, plaintiffs attorney Gregory Petersen said.
