contractorsLowe’s assistant store managers and former zone managers are seeing red, and hoping to see green.  According to the class action labor lawsuit filed by California labor law firm Blumenthal Nordrehaug & Bhowmik against the home improvement giant, Lowe's misclassified their Zone Managers and Assistant Store Managers as exempt from overtime and therefore failed to pay overtime due to these employees. Valle, et al. vs. Lowe's HIW, Inc., Case No. CV-11-1489.  Specifically, though zone managers and assistant store managers held a managerial title, they really spent very little time performing managerial work.  Additionally, they worked between 40 and 65 hours per week.

“The Fair Labor Standards Act guarantees workers who perform non-exempt work the right to overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours a week or 8 hours per day,” said Norman Blumenthal, founding partner of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik.

Lowe's Assistant Store Managers or Zone Managers who work, or have worked in California, may have a claim for overtime wages due to a misclassification as exempt employees attorneys for Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik assert in the Complaint.
