Convenience store chain Speedway LLC has been sued by a former salaried general manager who alleges he was improperly denied overtime wages.
According to the collective and class action, the plaintiff worked for the defendant out of Brockton, Massachusetts at a former Hess Express that was acquired by Speedway. During his tenure, the plaintiff primarily worked alone in the store or with one other employee, the suit says. The man claims he typically clocked 55 hours per week performing mainly non-managerial tasks, such as running the cash register, stocking inventory and cleaning. The case alleges Speedway nevertheless maintained an unlawful policy of not paying overtime to salaried managers for hours worked in excess of 40 each week.
