Safeway Faces Employment Class Action for Unpaid Overtime

It has happened to many hourly employees. They are asked to stay late or come in early and they agree. Though it may be difficult mentally to work more than 40 hours a week, the extra pay may be worth it. But what happens when a worker's employer fails to pay for overtime? As can be seen, by a recent case, these employees should consider filing a lawsuit.

Nineteen managers of the now-closed Dominick's store chain, a former subsidiary of the Safeway grocery store company, have filed a lawsuit claiming the company's failure to compensate them for overtime work caused damages. The employees also allege the companies often under-reported the hours worked by employees, thereby avoiding compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act. By filing their lawsuit, these employees hope to recover their lost wages and prevent similar practices from occurring in the future.

Workers often give their all to their employers. In return, they ask for safe working conditions, fair wages, and a discrimination and harassment-free workplace. When any of these expectations are breached, as was in the case mentioned above, employees can be harmed emotionally and financially. Often, filing a lawsuit is the best way to ensure wage & hour disputes are settled, discrimination and harassment are put to an end, and matters of wrongful termination are made right.

Since these types of situations often involve many employees, it is often beneficial to file them as an employment class action lawsuit. This type of litigation can be quite complex, but an experienced attorney can prove helpful. By seeking out a passionate legal team, employees who have been wronged by their employers place themselves in the best legal position possible to reach a favorable outcome.
