WILMINGTON, DEL. (CN) – McDonald’s stiffs its assistant managers for overtime pay “on average, at least 10 to 20 hours per week,” a class action claims in Federal Court. Plaintiffs claim McDonalds also misclassifies workers as management to cheat them of overtime pay, though they flip burgers, take orders and empty the trash like anyone else.
Named plaintiff Alissa Justison also claims McDonald’s forces its management trainees to work overtime during their 3-month training, without overtime pay.
She demands the overtime pay the class was cheated out of, and as much again in damages. She is represented by Timothy Wilson with Martin & Wilson.
