I. Who is the defendant?

The Clark Companies, N.A., Clarks footwear operates in over 100 countries around the world with their corporate headquarters in Newton, Massachusetts, United States. According to their website, Clarks footwear is all about style and comfort. They are continually developing cutting-edge footwear.


II. What is this case about?

Unpaid overtime wages. Assistant Store Managers, Managers and Full Time Key Holders at Clark are paid a salary but not paid any overtime wages when they work beyond 40 hours in a week. We claim in this lawsuit that this is wrong and that these employees are entitled to be paid on an hourly basis, including time and a half when they work more than 40 hours in a week.


III. But I was told that I am salaried. Does this mean that I don’t get overtime?

Not true. Whether or not you get overtime is a question of law, and the fact that an employer pays you a salary and no overtime premiums does not mean that you aren’t entitled to overtime. We see many examples of employees who are told that they are salaried when in fact they should have been paid on an hourly basis, including time and a half for hours over forty.


IV. What does the law require?

State and federal overtime laws require employers to pay time and a half when employees work more than 40 hours in a week. There are exceptions to this rule. Including, exemptions for executives, professionals, and administrators, there are also exemptions for outside sales and inside sales (but only when commissions are more than half of the employee’s total pay). Employees are allowed to join collective actions simply by signing and returning a consent form.


V. What court is the case filed in? Does it matter?

This case is filed in Federal Court in Connecticut. It is not limited, however, to Connecticut Assistant Store Managers, Managers and Full Time Key Holders. We are seeking nationwide status so that Assistant Store Managers, Managers and Full Time Key Holders from around the country can join and be represented.

It is illegal to retaliate against an employee who joins a lawsuit like this. If you experience retaliation, we will help you.


VIII. What if I don’t have records of my hours?

Don’t worry. Employees who are misclassified as “exempt” and not paid overtime can still sue even if they didn’t keep time records. The hours that you worked can usually be determined by other methods, including when you logged on and off a computer system, when you sent emails or made phone calls, and other ways.

XI. How much can I expect to get?

It depends. We claim that Assistant Store Managers, Managers and Full Time Key Holders should be paid for the hours they worked beyond forty in a week during the last three years. The actual amount you get (if any) will depend on how many hours you worked, your salary, and other factors.


XII. Will I have to pay any legal fees or costs?

We have agreed to work on this case on a “contingency” basis which means that our fee, and reimbursement for our costs, will come, if at all, out of any settlement. The court will closely supervise our fee petition and ensure that it is fair to the class.
