the home improvement company illegally classified their Assistant Store Managers as exempt from overtime pay
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 21, 2013
On October 1, 2013, the San Diego labor lawyers at Blumenthal Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a lawsuit against Home Depot U.S.A., Inc. (“Home Depot”) alleging the home improvement company illegally classified their Assistant Store Managers as exempt from overtime pay. Capps vs. Home Depot U.S.A., Inc., Case No. 37-2013-00069596-CU-OE-CTL is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court for the State of California.
The Complaint alleges that the Assistant Store Managers spent the majority of their time performing non-exempt work tasks throughout their shifts, such as physically unloading trucks and checking in deliveries. The Complaint alleges that the Assistant Store Managers spent very little time in actually supervising other Home Depot employees. As a result, the lawsuit alleges that the Assistant Store Managers should have been properly classified as non-exempt employees and thus should have been paid overtime wages and been provided the legally required meal periods.
