Shop Managers should have been paid overtime wages and provided with the legally required thirty minute uninterrupted meal periods.
San Bernardino, California (PRWEB) February 04, 2015
On December 23, 2014, the San Diego employment law attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action complaint seeking overtime wages and alleged missed meal period penalties against Michael Kors Stores (California), Inc. alleging the clothing company misclassified their Shop Managers as exempt from overtime pay and the legally required meal periods. The Michael Kors overtime class action, Case No. CIVDS1419114 is currently pending in the San Bernardino County Superior Court for the State of California.
The Class Action Complaint claims that the Shop Managers spent the majority of their time performing non-exempt labor for Michael Kors, including, greeting and assisting customers, setting up sales racks and displays, merchandising in accordance with company standards, cleaning fixtures, and dealing with customer service issues. The lawsuit further alleges that the Shop Managers spent no time actually managing other employees working for Michael Kors because allegedly they were the only employees in the store. As a result, the Class Action Complaint claims that the Shop Managers should have been paid overtime wages and provided with the legally required thirty minute uninterrupted meal periods.
