On December 20, 2013, the San Diego employment lawyers at Blumenthal Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a lawsuit seeking overtime wages against Lowe's HIW, Inc. (“Lowe's”) alleging the home improvement company misclassified their Assistant Store Managers as exempt from overtime pay and the legally required meal periods. Adams, et al. vs. Lowe's HIW, Inc., Case No. 37-2013-00080825 is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court for the State of California.
The Class Action Complaint alleges that the Assistant Store Managers spent the majority of their time performing non-exempt labor for Lowe's, including, processing customer service requests, assisting in the merchandising operation, and conducting inventory audits among other things.
