Guess? Co-Manager Wage and Hour Settlement Notes

  • Marisol Russell, et al. v. Guess Inc.
  • Case No. 01-14-0001-1865
  • Pending in the American Arbitration Association

Five former employees of Guess? initiated this arbitration alleging that Guess? misclassified its Co-Managers and denied them overtime pay for any hours worked over 40 in a workweek.

Specifically, the plaintiffs maintain that “despite being paid a weekly salary, their primary duties as Co-Managers did not permit Guess? to treat Co-Managers as exempt from the FLSA requirement that employers pay workers overtime pay for hours worked over 40 in a workweek”.

Additionally, the complaint alleges that Guess? violated wage and hour laws under the Fair Labor Standards Act, New York Labor Law , New Jersey Wage and Hour Law, and Illinois Wage Laws.

Guess? denies the allegations and asserts that it properly classified its Co-Managers  as exempt and compensated for all hours worked. Guess? further contends that it has complied with all state and federal labor laws. However, the company agreed to settle the case for $775,000.

Class members who wish to exclude themselves or object to the settlement must do so by June 25 2018. If you wish to participate in the settlement, you must submit a Claim Form no later than June 25, 2018.

HRS Home Health Clinician Overtime Settlement Notes

  • Brown, et al. v. Health Resource Solutions, Inc., et al.
  • Case No. 16-cv-10667
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois

In November 2016, plaintiff Monique Brown filed this class action lawsuit against Health Resource Solutions alleging she and other Home Health Clinicians, including Registered Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Speech Therapists, were deprived of overtime wages in violation of federal and state wage laws.

The HRS class action lawsuit contends that company’s Home Health Clinicians should have been paid for overtime for the time they worked in excess of 40 hours per wee. The complaint was filed as a collective action under the Fair Labor Standards Act or FLSA and as a class action under the Illinois Minimum Wage Law.

HRS denies the claims in this lawsuit, denies it did anything wrong, and believes that it properly classified and compensated its Home Health Clinicians but agreed to settle the case for $900,000 to avoid further litigation. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the HRS Settlement website.

Primanti Bros Tipped Employees FLSA Settlement Notes

  • Koenig, et al. v. Primanti Corporation d/b/a Primanti Bros., et al.
  • Case No. 2:16-cv-01402
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania

In September 2016, plaintiff Chelsea Koenig brought this collective class action lawsuit against Primanti Bros restaurants, claiming she and other “tipped employees” such as bartenders, servers, barbacks, bussers, and food runners, were deprived of wages in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act or FLSA.

Under the FLSA, all employees are entitled to be paid minimum wage for all hours worked. However, according to Koenig, a former bartender for Primanti Bros, the restaurant chain instituted a tip credit system rather than pay its tipped employees applicable minimum wage. While, in certain circumstances, an employer can take a tip credit and pay its employees less then the mandated minimum wage, the employee’s tips received from customers plus the tip credit wage paid by the employer needs to equal at least minimum wage.

Primanti Bros owns and operates 23 full service restaurants locations in Pennsylvania and 14 across Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana, Maryland, and Michigan. The company denies any wrongdoing and maintains that they paid their tipped employees properly and that they provided proper notice of the tip credit.

Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Primanti Bros Tipped Employees FLSA Settlement website.

The Primanti Bros Tipped Employees FLSA class action settlement was granted preliminary approval on January 17, 2018. Class members who wish to exclude themselves or object to the settlement must do so by April 16, 2018. Class members who wish to participate in the settlement must submit their claim form on or before April 16, 2018.
