On February 13, 2013 the Los Angeles employment lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a lawsuit against Leslie's Poolmart, Inc. ("Leslie's" ) for allegedly failing to pay their retail store employees the correct amount of overtime compensation. Cunningham, et al. vs. Leslie's Poolmart, Inc., Case No. BC500796 is currently pending in the Los Angeles County Superior Court for the State of California.
The lawsuit against Leslie's alleges that the non-exempt employees working in Leslie's retail stores across the country receive non-discretionary bonuses for selling certain products in the store which Leslie's fails to include in the regular rate of pay for the purposes of calculating overtime pay. The Complaint states that all non-exempt employees that were paid the non-discretionary bonuses or spiffs, have been regularly underpaid overtime compensation during their employment with Leslie's. You can read more about the lawsuit from the Complaint.
The Complaint also alleges that Leslie's fails to follow California's meal and rest break laws in that the company allegedly does not have a company wide policy to compensate the purported class members for their missed meal and rest breaks.
Leslie's attorneys have not yet responded to the lawsuit.
