RYE BROOK, N.Y., April 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Klafter Olsen & Lesser LLP and Hepworth Gershbaum & Roth PLLC announce that Target Corporation and Target Corporation of Minnesota (NYSE: TGT), have offered to pay $83,000 to two Executive Team Leaders for failing to pay proper overtime wages, including one Executive Team Leader being offered $68,000, in connection with a lawsuit filed in the District of New Jersey, Locicero, et al. v. Target Corporation, et al., 16-cv-05592. Target also agreed to pay the Executive Team Leader's attorney's fees and costs.
The claims arose under the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") and asserted that Target violated the FLSA by failing to pay Executive Team Leaders all wages due and owing to them for working more than 40 hours a week. Target did not pay overtime to the Executive Team Leaders at time and one-half, and Plaintiffs alleged that its practice violated the law. The full number of Executive Team Leaders who were subject to Target's pay practice is not known.
The Target Executive Team leaders are represented by Seth Lesser, Fran Rudich, and Chris Timmel of Klafter Olsen & Lesser LLP and Marc Hepworth, David Roth and Rebecca Predovan of Hepworth Gershbaum & Roth PLLC.
"We are thrilled to obtain these thousands of dollars for these two clients," said Seth Lesser of KOL. "It is one of Klafter Olsen & Lesser's priorities, and that of co-counsel, Hepworth Gershbaum & Roth, to help workers obtain overtime premiums to which they are entitled, and we hope that these judgments send another message to Target and other employers that they need to be vigilant in complying with the law," Mr. Lesser explained.
The two firms representing Plaintiffs have extensive experience in bringing FLSA and wage and hour cases involving the failure to pay overtime. Please visit either of the firms' websites, www.klafterolsen.com and www.hgrlawyers.com , for more information.
