Golden Corral Overtime Settlement Notes

  • Robert Schriver et al. v. Golden Corral Corporation
  • Case No. 4:17-cv-136
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division

In January 2017, Plaintiff Robert Schriver filed this collective class action lawsuit against Golden Corral alleging the buffet-style restaurant chain failed to pay Associate Managers overtime pay for the time they worked in excess of 40 hours a week. The lawsuit also claims Golden Corral improperly paid AM trainees a lump sum instead of overtime.

According to Schriver’s complaint, to become an Associate Manager at one of Golden Corral’s 50 restaurants, a worker must first undergo a training program. Schriver says that Golden Corral unlawfully paid him and other AM trainees a fixed “lump sum” each week during this training program, rather that an overtime premium for all hours worked over 40, in violation of federal and state wage laws.

Golden Corral denies it did anything wrong but agreed to settle to avoid the uncertainty of further litigation. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Golden Corral Overtime settlement website.

Class members who wish to participate in the settlement must opt in to the collective action or before August 6, 2018.
