Knott’s Berry Farm Cheats On Pay, Class Says

SANTA ANA, CALIF. (CN) - Knott's Berry Farm cheats workers of overtime by calling them "supervisors" and "assistant managers" though they do the same work as other employees in food services at the popular amusement park, a class action claims in Superior Court.

Named plaintiff Mark St. Croix sued Cedar Fair and Magnum Management Corp. both of which do business as Knott's Berry Farm.

But he says, "Any differences in job activities between the different individuals in these positions were and are legally insignificant".

He is represented by James Trush of Costa Mesa.
