A proposed class action claims defendant Graham Shoe Corp., which does business as Lady Shoe Five Dollars, and its owner failed to pay proper minimum and overtime wages in accordance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and New York Labor Law. Filed by a shoe salesman still employed by the defendant, the lawsuit claims the Brooklyn, New York-based shoe store failed to pay the plaintiff time-and-a-half hourly overtime wages for the roughly 60 to 70 hours he worked per week. Additionally, the plaintiff says he worked “six or seven shifts” per week that lasted longer than 10 hours in a day without receiving spread-of-hours pay required by state law.
