Companies who misclassify managers fail to pay their share of unemployment taxes and other state and federal taxes.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
On December 21, 2012, the Los Angeles employment law firm Blumenthal Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action against PQ Operations, Inc. (“Le Pain Quotidien”) alleging the bakery chain illegally classified their Assistant Store Managers as exempt from overtime pay. Harvey, et al. vs. PQ Operations, Inc., Case No. BC497964 is currently pending in the Los Angeles County Superior Court for the State of California.
The Class Action Complaint alleges that the Assistant Managers spent the majority of their time performing non-exempt work tasks throughout their shifts, such as providing service to the bakery's customers. The Complaint alleges that the Assistant Managers did very little in supervising other employees. As a result, the Complaint claims that the Assistant Managers were misclassified as exempt and should have been properly classified as non-exempt employees entitled to overtime wages and other related benefits.
Managing partner, Norman B. Blumenthal, claimed “Companies who misclassify managers fail to pay their share of unemployment taxes and other state and federal taxes.”
