Overtime Wages Investigation On Behalf Of Hourly, Non-Exempt Panera Bread Employees 

Recently, a class and collective action complaint was filed in federal court against Panera, LLC (“Panera”) seeking to recover unpaid overtime compensation and other damages for non-exempt, hourly employees (e.g., baristas, counter workers, associates, cashiers, cleaners, bakers, sandwich/salad makers, other cooks) who work or have worked for Panera at “Panera Bread” cafes in New York.

Panera, according to the complaint, maintains a policy and practice whereby hourly workers are subject to “time shaving” by store managers. Time shaving, allegedly, caused the Plaintiff and other hourly employees not to be paid proper overtime wages, despite working over 40 hours in a workweek in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and New York Labor Law (“NYLL”).
