Barnes And Noble Overtime Case

Did you work unpaid overtime hours as a Barnes and Noble Café Manager?

If so, you may be owed overtime wages. Shavitz Law Group along with co-counsel Hepworth Gershbaum & Roth PLLC represent Barnes and Noble Café Managers in a lawsuit who claim that they were misclassified as exempt and are owed overtime pay.

The time period covered by the lawsuit is November 8, 2010 to October 2016 in New York and September 20, 2013 to October 2016 in all other states except California. If you worked as a Café Manager during these time periods, you may be owed unpaid wages and be eligible to participate in this case.

As a Café Manager, did you experience:

  • Working overtime hours without compensation; and/or
  • Spending most of your time performing the same job duties as Café Servers and Baristas, such as making coffee, customer service, arranging products and displays, preparing food, and cleaning the café.
  • You may be eligible to claim unpaid overtime wages, plus an additional equal amount of damages, (i.e., double damages) under the federal law known as the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). Even if you were paid a salary, Barnes and Noble might owe you unpaid overtime wages if your primary duties were non-exempt tasks such as cleaning, making coffee, and similar such work.
