Costco Junior Managers – Unpaid Overtime

Kessler Matura P.C. has filed a class and collective action lawsuit on behalf of current and former “Junior Managers” who worked for Costco.

The complaint alleges that Costco’s Junior Managers were required to work over 40 hours a week with the benefit of overtime pay. Costco considers their Junior Managers to be salaried manages that are not entitled to overtime. Our clients, however, allege that Costco’s Junior Managers do not have the required level of authority to deny them overtime pay under state and federal law. As a result, we allege that Junior Managers are owed considerable unpaid overtime.

This lawsuit seeks to recover back wages and related damages to all individuals employed in New York since October 23, 2017, who worked for Costco as Junior Managers. It is our understanding that Costco used a variety of job titles for individuals in these positions, including: Hardlines Merchandising Manager, Foods Manager, Night Floor Manager, Center Merchandising Manager, Membership Manager, Assistant Receiving Manager, and Assistant Front End Manager.
