It appears that another company may be failing to pay Tennessee Employee’s Overtime Pay. The new lawsuit allleges that two former employees of Shoe Show Inc, claim that the Shoe Show has denied overtime to several of its current and former store managers nationwide. The collective action lawsuit was filed earlier this month in the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee, Jackson Division.
According to the case, Eugene Bethel and Deborah Webb worked for Shoe Show as store managers in three different Shoe Show stores located in Western and Eastern Tennessee. According to their complaint, Bethel and Webb claim that Shoe Show paid them less than the overtime rate required by the Fair Labor Standards Act. Bethel and Webb also claim hat Shoe Show denied overtime pay to all store managers who oversaw the work of fewer than two full-time employees.
The lawsuit has stated that, “The law requires employers to pay their employees an honest day’s wage for an honest day’s work. By refusing to pay Mr. Bethel, Ms. Webb, and other store managers proper pay for the overtime hours they worked, Shoe Show denied these hard-working men and women the pay they deserved and the pay they were legally entitled to receive.”
