In this consulting assignment, we were retained to estimate the potential damages in an ‘off-the-clock’ FLSA class action lawsuit involving a large west coast grocery store chain. In this case which the court has certified as a class it is alleged that the employer denied the particular class of employees a designated meal break period. In the state in which the case was filed the state law required a re-classification of the particular class of employees from exempt to non-exempt. We were also retained to review and critique the opposing side’s economic damage expert.
