Dollar Tree Stores Hourly Employees Bring Class Action

October 25 2010

Ft. Lauderdale, FL: - On September 1, 2010, two assistant store managers (hourly employees) filed a collective action under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) for failure to pay minimum wage and overtime compensation.

Dollar Tree operates thousands of stores in all 48 contiguous states, with its headquarters located in Chesapeake, Virginia. Their website boasts that they are the largest and most successful single price-point retailer in the country. Joann Badgett and Solomon Morgan, the plaintiffs who filed the lawsuit, worked in stores located in South Florida.

Plaintiffs seek to have their claims certified as a collective action under the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA,") (a type of class action in which individuals employed in similar job positions are provided with an opportunity to pursue minimum wage and overtime pay claims by opting into a lawsuit filed by representative plaintiffs.)

I was a Dollar Tree employee in the state of Michigan and was just curious if anyone filed a lawsuit against the company in this state. The experience I had working for them was a complete nightmare. From screaming at you in front of employees, to changing your schedule on a day-to-day basis and acting like you should know these things. Then make you feel incompetent. And a manager went in my till twice one evening and it came up $3.00 short, and she wrote me up for it. I was never over or under $1.00 during my employment there. I quit after that because this company is highly unethical.
