UPDATE:Order Denying Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment: By this order, the Court denied a motion which was filed by Ocean State to dismiss the case. The court ruled that there are open issues as to whether or not the Assistant Managers are properly classified as exempt executives or not. The court also ruled that the Defendant’s claim that it acted in good faith should go to trial for a jury determination. If it cannot prove that it acted in good faith then the damages in the case will be doubled.
In this action, our client, Omar Morrison, seek to invite all other Assistant Store Managers at Ocean State Job Lot stores nationwide who have been classified as Exempt from the overtime requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Mr. Morisson claims that he and other Assistant Store Managers should not have been classified as Exempt from the overtime requirements of the FLSA and that he and all other Assistant Store Managers should have been paid overtime compensation. A copy of his original Complaint can be found below.
Federal judges have recently awarded unpaid overtime wages to classes of retail managers and assistant managers who spend most of their time performing non-management tasks.
