Additional Details
Assistant managers are commonly subject to illegal overtime practices in which an employer will inform an employee that they are an "assistant manager" and therefore ineligible for overtime pay under the executive exemption, even though they perform mostly non-managerial duties. Eligibility for overtime pay is based on an employee's job duties and compensation - never their job title.
Assistant managers who were denied overtime may be able to file a claim for up to two years of unpaid overtime, or three years in instances of willful violations.
