Assistant managers at Verizon stores Downriver had their rights violated under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) when they were not paid one and one-half times their regular pay rate for hours worked over 40 hours in a workweek. Verizon, the telecommunications company, misclassified their assistant managers as “executive employees” and had a policy of not paying them overtime. Some workers are executive employees under the FLSA and are not entitled to overtime. However, the assistant managers at Verizon believed that their work did not meet the standards to be an executive because they were doing all the same work as sales attendants who were paid overtime. The Downriver, Verizon assistant managers retained the help of the Law Offices of Bryan Yaldou. We were able to vindicate their rights by successfully negotiating a settlement for the assistant managers who contacted us. Just because the assistant managers had the executive title, did not mean that they met the standard for the executive exemption under the FLSA. Assistant managers who spend most of their time doing tasks that their teams do are often covered by the FLSA and entitled to back wages and liquidated damages. We were happy to get our neighbors the overtime they deserved at no cost to them.
