Pick ‘n Save Sued for Failing to Pay Overtime to Assistant Store Managers
Conway Legal today filed suit in federal district court in Cincinnati, OH, on behalf of a former “Assistant Store Manager” who was not paid overtime compensation for working more than 40 hours in a workweek. The lawsuit alleges that Assistant Store Managers in over 100 “Pick ‘n Save stores in Wisconsin routinely work more than 40 hours a week in order to complete their job duties, yet are denied overtime compensation despite performing work that is substantially similar to those that are entitled to receive overtime. The lawsuit asserts collective action claims under federal law. A copy of the legal paperwork that started the lawsuit can be found here.
The lawsuit alleges that Assistant Store Managers spend the majority of their time helping customers, moving freight, stocking shelves, building displays, counting inventory, cleaning the store, and otherwise standing in as cashiers, stockers, or other hourly workers. It alleges that The Kroger Company and Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc. – as owners and operators of Pick ‘n Save stores – have a policy, pattern, and/or practice of misclassifying Assistant Store Managers as exempt from overtime. It seeks to recover all unpaid overtime owed to Assistant Store Managers who work or have worked for Pick ‘n Save between November 17, 2017 and the present.
