Lawsuit Filed Against Dick’s Sporting Goods Seeking To Recover Unpaid Overtime Compensation On Behalf Of Assistant Sales Managers and Assistant Store Managers
Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making individuals aware that a class and collective action complaint has been filed in United States District Court, Western District of Pennsylvania, against Dick’s Sporting Goods, Inc. (“Dick’s”) to recover unpaid overtime compensation on behalf of Dick’s Assistant Sales Managers and Assistant Store Managers who, allegedly, were misclassified as exempt from state and federal overtime requirements.
According to the complaint, Dick’s Sporting Goods
. . . was aware that Plaintiffs and the Class Members worked more than 40 hours per workweek, yet Defendant [Dick’s] failed to pay overtime compensation for hours worked over 40 in a workweek.
Defendant [Dick’s] did not keep accurate records of hours worked by Plaintiffs or the Class Members.
Plaintiffs’ and the Class Members’ primary duties were routine, non-exempt tasks including, but not limited to: running the registers, stocking, cleaning, processing shipments, building displays, selling firearms, covering cashier’s breaks, helping with trucks by unloading and putting the items in their proper department, cutting open boxes, and putting items away.
Plaintiffs and the Class Members spent the majority of their time as Assistant Managers performing these duties that were the same as or similar to tasks performed by hourly, non-exempt employees.
Plaintiffs’ and the Class Members’ primary duties as Assistant Managers did not differ substantially from the duties of hourly, non-exempt employees. [Emphasis added.]
