On February 12, 2013, The Law Offices of Louis Ginsberg, P.C. And Mclaughlin and Stern LLP filed a Nationwide Class Action Lawsuit against Autozone alleging violations of the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act and New York and Pennsylvania Labor Laws.
The Class Action was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of current and former hourly paid sales clerks and sales managers who worked for Autozone throughout the United States during the Class Period. The Complaint alleges that the employees were not paid all of their straight time and overtime wages because of improper rounding by employee time clocks. The Complaint also alleges that the workers did not get fully paid for work during meal breaks and for work performed before and after their shifts. Autozone has approximately 4,534 stores nationwide and employed about 65,000 people.
