The Class Action Lawsuit alleges that CVS operates 7,000 retail stores nationwide and has failed to pay its employees for required off the clock security checks.
Roslyn, NY (PRWEB) May 24, 2010
A lawsuit has been filed in the Federal District Court of the United States for the Eastern District of New York, Case No. 10 Civ. 2075, on behalf of a class of current and former CVS employees alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York State labor laws. The lawsuit contends that employees at CVS stores are subjected to off-the-clock security checks at the end of each shift which can take up to 30 minutes. It also accuses the Rhode Island based company of forcing employees to work through meal and rest breaks without compensation and of failing to pay overtime wages.
The suit was filed by Jeanne D’Esposito and Gerald Lawrence of Lowey, Dannenberg, Cohen & Hart and Louis Ginsberg of the Law Offices of Louis Ginsberg, P.C. and alleges that after clocking out, employees are required to wait for a manager to be paged and then submit to a search of their person and personal belongings. The suit also maintains that employees are not paid overtime wages and are routinely required to work during paid meal and/or rest breaks and after they clock out.
