At A Glance

This Alert Affects
Assistant managers at Qdoba who were denied overtime pay.
What's the Problem?
It is believed that Qdoba may be misclassifying certain employees as managers to avoid paying overtime to these workers. Even though the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) permits "executives" or managers to work overtime without extra pay, Qdoba assistant managers may not actually fit the definition of an "executive" under the Act and therefore may be entitled to time-and-a-half pay for their overtime hours.
What Are The Exemptions?
The most common exemptions to overtime regulations apply to commissioned sales employees, seasonal workers, executives with specific work responsibilities, and "learned" professionals, such as teachers, lawyers and doctors.
