San Francisco and Los Angeles Labor Law Firm Zealously Pursues Unpaid Overtime for Lowe’s Assistant Store Managers and Former Zone Managers – Los Angeles Wage & Hour Claims Attorneys Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik

contractorsThe California labor law firm, Blumenthal Nordrehaug & Bhowmik, has filed a class action labor lawsuit against Lowe’s alleging that the home improvement giant intentionally misclassified their Zone Managers and Assistant Store Managers as exempt from overtime and therefore not eligible for overtime pay.  Valle, et al. vs. Lowe's HIW, Inc., Case No. CV-11-1489.  According to the lawsuit, zone managers and assistant store managers held a managerial title and worked between 40 and 65 hours every week.  However, in reality none of these managers performed very much managerial work and none were paid overtime pay for any hours worked beyond the Fair Labor Standards Act requirements (FLSA).

“The FLSA explicitly says that workers who perform non-exempt work are entitled 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.”

Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik is an experienced California employment law firm with offices located in San Diego, San Francisco and Los Angeles. The firm dedicates its practice to contingency fee employment law work for issues involving misclassification as a salaried worker exempt from overtime, failure to pay vacation wages, misclassification as an independent contractor, off-the-clock work, wrongful termination, discrimination and other California labor laws.
