Two assistant managers have sued the retailer Dollar Tree for overtime and minimum wage violations.  The lawsuit, which seeks class action status, claims that the employees were regularly required to work off the clock and through lunch breaks, time for which their pay was docked.  They filed suit under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and Florida law in federal court in Florida.

Both the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and Kentucky law require that nonexempt employees be paid overtime.  The job title of assistant manager does not mean that an employee is exempt from overtime. 

If an employee works through their lunch break, they must be paid for the time.  An employee cannot be required to work off the clock.

If you have not been paid the wages or overtime owed you, contact Lexington, Kentucky overtime lawyer Robert Abell at 859-254-7076.
