Warehouse Manager Recovers $13,000 in Unpaid Overtime
A warehouse manager for a major food distributor recovered $13,000 in unpaid overtime. In this case, the client was a manager who really should have been exempt from overtime. The employer lost the exemption because, while it appeared that the client was paid a salary, in reality he really wasn’t. The employer paid the client a base salary, but also paid the client a straight hourly rate for all hours over 40. In addition, there were some situations where the employer docked the client’s base salary. This situation is commonly referred to as a failed exemption case.
