Additional Details
Assistant managers are among the employees who are commonly subject to illegal overtime practices. Often, employees responsible for assisting customers, stocking shelves, or managing cash registers are given the title of "assistant manager," even though they are provided few managerial duties, and are thereby misclassified into a group of employees known as "executives" who are not eligible for overtime pay. As a result, they are denied the overtime pay to which they are entitled.
Date
Assistant managers who were denied overtime pay may be able to recover unpaid overtime dating back two years, or three years if their employer's violations were willful.
