Many grocery stores rely upon dedicated long-term employees to stock shelves, run deli and produce departments, check out customers and to otherwise operate grocery stores, which are typically open seven days per week. Overtime violations are frequently greater where grocery stores are open 24 hours per day or when employees work12 hour overnight shifts.
Pelton & Associates is currently litigating on behalf of hundreds of current and former employees of the Queens, New York Trade Fair Supermarkets, where employees working over forty hours per week were required to punch two different time cards with one time card being paid in cash at straight-time rates. The firm has successfully sued a number of independently-owned supermarkets operating under the Associated, Met and C-Town brands as well as several Kosher supermarkets within the New York City vicinity.
