Price Chopper

STATUS: Resolved

On July 30, 2014, Outten & Golden LLP, together with Cohen Kinne Valicenti & Cook LLP, filed a class and collective action complaint in Massachusetts district court against Price Chopper supermarkets on behalf of Department Team Leaders, also known as Department Managers. The lawsuit alleges that Price Chopper violated the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage laws by misclassifying Team Leaders as exempt employees and failing to pay them overtime for the hours they worked over 40.

On February 8, 2018, the Court granted final approval of the parties’ class action settlement.
