Shavitz Law Group File’s Wage Suit in NY on Behalf of Hertz ‘Managers’ for Unpaid Overtime

John Petrick, Law360 – June 12, 2019

Workers at New York Hertz rental car locations who say they are classified as location managers despite having no managerial duties have accused the company of forcing them to work up to 20 hours a week without overtime pay.

The case is Polat Kemal v. The Hertz Corporation et al., case number 1:19-cv-05461, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
