Foot Locker Sued for Wage Violations

Foot Locker, the nationwide chain of footwear stores with thousands of locations across the country, has been hit with a wage theft lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court. An employee who worked as a Sales Associate and/or Assistant Store Manager, both overtime-eligible positions, claims that Foot Locker did not pay her for all the hours she worked and failed to pay her time and one-half for overtime hours.

The lawsuit alleges that the employee was not paid for work she was required to perform during her lunch break, before she clocked in, after clocking out and on weekends and off-days. In addition, she was not paid a rate of one and one half times her regular hourly rate for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. Failure to pay overtime-eligible employees for all hours worked and overtime premiums for hours above 40 are violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York Labor Law.
