Raymour and Flanigan Overtime Case

A class action has been filed against Raymour & Flanigan, a well-known furniture retailer. The lawsuit alleges that managers, who were paid a fixed salary, are misclassified as exempt. The issue in these cases turns on whether the managers were actually performing managerial duties, such as supervision, hiring and firing over 50% of the time. If the managers were doing non-exempt work, similar to hourly employees, they have a good chance to win the case.
