Schmidt Baking Company Sued for Unpaid Overtime; Managers Claim They Were Misclassified

Posted on behalf of Peter T. Nicholl in Unpaid Overtime Apr 10, 2019

truck traveling quicklyOn July 6, 2016, our firm filed a Complaint against Schmidt Baking Company, Inc. (“Schmidt”). The Complaint alleges that Schmidt unlawfully denied overtime payments to its District Sales Managers (“DSMs”). The Complaint alleges that Schmidt intentionally misclassified DSMs as salaried employees rather than hourly employees and in doing so, failed to pay DSMs overtime (“time-and-a-half”) wages when they worked more than 40 hours in a workweek.

Plaintiffs allege that this is a direct violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. This was based on Schmidt’s failure to acknowledge the work Plaintiffs and other DSMs performed on a “mixed fleet” of vehicles weighing both under and over ten thousand (10,000) pounds, as well as Schmidt’s misclassification of DSMs as administrative or executive employees.
