A California federal Judge ruled a lawsuit brought on behalf of Assistant Store Managers working for Nike Retail Services cannot proceed as a class action.

A copy of the Court's order denying class certification can be read by clicking here.

The class action lawsuit was originally filed by the San Francisco Employment Law Lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik in November of 2013, alleging that Nike misclassified their Asistant Store Managers as exempt from overtime pay and as a result, allegedly, did not pay these employees overtime wages, failed to provide the legally mandated meal and rest breaks, and accurate wage statements as required by California law.

In the original Complaint, which can be read here, the Plaintiff claimed that she spent the majority of her work shifts engaging in non-exempt tasks. As a result, the Complaint claimed that Assistant Store Managers working at Nike retail stores in California should have been entitled to overtime pay, among other things.
