Retail Store & Warehouse Employees

The Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) requires certain employers to pay their employees overtime compensation for all hours worked in excess of forty in a workweek at a rate not less than one and one-half times their regular rate of pay. Employees are generally assumed to be entitled to the rights and protections of the FLSA unless the employer is able to establish that such employees are not covered by the act because the employee fits within one of the several statutory exemptions.

Retail Store Employees and Warehouse Workers often work long hours without receiving compensation for all hours worked. Sales clerks and associates, stock persons, assistant managers and store managers are often improperly forced to work more than forty hours in a workweek without receiving overtime wages. Employee misclassification is another common problem in this sector. Many assistant managers and even store managers have been misclassified as exempt and therefore not covered by the FLSA when they are, in fact, entitled to overtime pay and other benefits of the wage laws.
