Dick’s Sporting Good Assistant Managers Sue for Unpaid Overtime

Recently, Dick’s Assistant Managers in New Jersey and Ohio filed a lawsuit claiming Dick’s illegally misclassified them as “exempt” employees, and failed to pay them overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act when they worked over 40 hours.  The Assistant Managers allege they are owed overtime because most of their work was “non-exempt,” including things like running the registers, stocking, cleaning, building displays, and unloading trucks.  Those assistant managers are suing for back wages, liquidated and other damages.

Employers may not call their assistant managers executives unless their primary duty is management.  We have found that many retailers violate this rule because their assistant managers spend most of their time doing manual labor such as unloading trucks and stocking shelves.  Connecticut and Massachusetts have similar laws designed to protect employees from employers who require employees to work over 40 hours but for no extra compensation.  If you believe you perform work that is “over-time eligible” but are not being paid overtime, contact our offices and consult with one of our experienced assistant manager unpaid overtime lawyers today.

I worked for a retailer and was a Plaintiff in a class action for unpaid overtime wages. Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore did an amazing job of getting our unpaid overtime back to us. Every one at the firm that I dealt with through that process was wonderful to work with. I appreciate all they did for us more than you will ever know.
