New Collective Action filed in the Eastern District of New York
Cassandra Wat v. J.M. Hollister, LLC, et al., Case No. 14-cv-5361
On September 12, 2014, Lead Plaintiff Cassandra Wat on behalf of herself and those similarly situated filed a class and collective action lawsuit in United States District Court – Eastern District of New York vs. J.M. Hollister, LLC d/b/a/ Hollister Company and Abercrombie & Fitch Stores, Inc. Ms. Wat worked for Hollister from in or about January 2013 to October 2013 holding the titles of “Manager-in-Training” and “Assistant Manager.” Hollister classified Ms. Wat as a non-exempt, salaried associate, meaning that she was entitled to overtime compensation for all hours worked in excess of forty per workweek. Throughout her employment, Ms. Wat worked approximately fifty hours per week. However, Defendants failed to pay Ms. Wat overtime compensation at the statutorily-required overtime rate of pay for each hour that she worked per week that was in excess of forty total hours, as the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act, the New York Labor Law, and the New York Compensation Codes Rules and Regulations require. In addition, Defendants failed to furnish Ms. Wat with accurate wage statements on each payday as required by the New York Labor Law.
