Acclaimed New York Employment Law Attorneys Recover Unpaid Overtime Damages for Underpaid Assistant Managers


Putting an end to the abuse of assistant managers by employers trying to save money

The Fair Labor Standards Act has exceptions regarding the types of employees that must be paid overtime for working more than 40 hours in a work week. One of the major exceptions to overtime pay is for people who perform Managerial tasks and are actual managers.  Retailers are exploiting this exception by promoting many employees and giving them the job title “Assistant Manager” or “co-Manager” However, they now work overtime hours doing task type work and not managerial duties.  Our attorneys at the New York law firm of Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC find it shameful that these businesses are clearly taking advantage of hard working employees by not properly paying them for the many hours that they worked. We get results for our clients nationwide and help put an end to the abusive tactics of employers.

Which retailers have our results-driven attorneys already held accountable for unpaid overtime to assistant manager?

Our experienced New York wage and hour lawyers have been successful at holding national retailers accountable for misclassifying employees as management in an attempt to avoid paying them overtime. Many of our cases are certified class action lawsuits against major retailers. A certified class action lawsuit means that we represent all individuals with the same or similar claim against the retailer nationally. Some of the defendants in various cases that were certified as a class action lawsuit include:

What is considered non-managerial work for the purposes of classifying employees as exempt from being entitled to overtime wages?

The Fair Labor Standards Act exempts true management positions from being paid overtime. However, the title Assistant manager alone does not meet the requirements for what the manager must do to be eligible for the exception. If you are a salaried assistant store manager, but you spend most of your day doing tasks around the store that the floor clerks are also doing, then you may very well be entitled to overtime wages for any hours worked over 40 hours per week. In addition to getting your wages adjusted for the future, you are also entitled to back pay as well as substantial damages both under federal and state law. A New York unpaid overtime for assistant manager’s lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve. We protect employees from the big corporations that try to take advantage of them.
