This class action alleges that groomers at Petco Animal Supplies Stores, Inc. were required to perform both grooming and other tasks and that final calculations of time worked and pay did not take into consideration required rest periods, meal breaks, actual worked hours, and overtime requirements.
FGX International employees Merchandisers. These are employees that go to retail stores and collect information regarding product placement and to update each store's inventory. FGX pays Merchandisers on a per store visit basis and not hourly. This lawsuit alleges that this pay structure violates federal and state laws regarding minimum wage, overtime pay and unpaid off the clock work.
