Unpaid Wages and Overtime Prompt Lawsuit Against Urban Outfitters

November 7th, 2017

Unpaid Wages and Overtime Prompt Lawsuit Against Urban Outfitters

Two retail employees from Urban Outfitters filed a lawsuit against the company for allegedly failing to fairly compensate them for hours they worked. Two separate claims were filed in New Jersey Federal Court against the Philadelphia-based company by a department manager from Royal Palm Beach, Florida, and another department manager from New York City. Apparently, any overtime hours the employees logged in after their 40-hour workweeks were left unpaid. According to the suit, the retail company, which operates nearly 250 stores nationwide, violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by allegedly neglecting to compensate the workers for overtime earnings they were owed.

Workers are entitled to a fair wage, and, if eligible, they are entitled to overtime pay if they exceed 40 hours during a workweek. Although the Urban Outfitters managers were classified as non-exempt employees, which adheres to company policy, and precludes them from overtime pay, the employees state that their duties comprised merely of folding clothes, keeping the store clean, and other manual tasks but not making any managerial decisions.
