On August 13, 2018, our firm filed a Complaint against Aldi, Inc. (Aldi). The Complaint alleges that Aldi unlawfully denied overtime payments to its Store Managers. Plaintiffs filed their Complaint on behalf of themselves and other “similarly situated” employees who worked in this position at any time within the three (3) years prior to August 2018.
Plaintiffs and other similarly situated employees were ostensibly paid a salary but their paystubs show an hourly rate. In practice, the Store Managers spent most of their time performing general labor or non-managerial duties rather than management or executive tasks.
The Complaint alleges that the duties performed by Plaintiffs and other Store Managers did not implicate any exemptions contained within the Fair Labor Standards Act. Consequently, Aldi failed to pay its Store Managers correctly for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. Aldi typically scheduled its Store Managers to work 50 hours each week, however, in practice, they consistently worked more. Although working overtime was integral to their employment, Aldi’s Store Managers consistently failed to receive time and a half (1.5) their regular rate for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek, or any wages for hours over 50 in a workweek.
Our firm seeks to recover unpaid overtime wages and liquidated (double) damages for all of these employees.
If you worked for Aldi as a Store Manager between August 13, 2015 and the present and were not paid overtime wages, you may have a claim.
