Capstone Restaurant Group Sued for Failing to Pay Overtime to Assistant Managers
Together with co-counsel, Conway Legal today filed suit in federal district court in Denver, CO, on behalf of a former “Assistant Manager” who was not paid overtime compensation for working more than 40 hours in a workweek. The lawsuit alleges that Assistant Managers in approximately 300 “Hardee’s” and “Carl’s Jr” restaurants across the country routinely work more than 40 hours a week in order to perform their job duties, yet are denied overtime compensation despite performing work that is substantially similar to those that are entitled to receive overtime. A copy of the legal paperwork that started the lawsuit can be found here.
The lawsuit alleges that Assistant Managers spent the majority of their time serving customers, ringing customers up on the cash register, preparing food, working the drive-thru, stocking, counting inventory, and cleaning the restaurant. It alleges that Capstone Restaurant Group – as owners and operators of the franchised locations – has a policy, pattern, and/or practice of misclassifying Assistant Managers as exempt and denying them overtime compensation. It seeks to recover all unpaid overtime owed to Assistant Managers who worked for Capstone between April 10, 2017 and the present.
