According to allegations in a recently filed class action lawsuit, Sneaker Villa (also known as VILLA Join the Movement) is cheating non-exempt employees out of their hard-earned overtime pay.
Sneaker Villa is a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based specialty retailer of urban-inspired apparel and footwear products, and operates more than 120 stores in Delaware, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin.
The plaintiffs in the suit are current and former employees of Sneaker Villa who worked as hourly, non-exempt store clerks. Despite regularly putting in more than 40 hours each week, they claim that the company maintained a policy of refusing to pay them overtime, a violation of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. The suit also claims that the company trained, instructed, and pressured its managers to alter the plaintiff’s timecards to avoid paying overtime.
If you worked as a “Key Holder,” “Sales Associate,” or “Fashion Expert” at any Sneaker Villa in Michigan or another state, you may be entitled to damages including back pay and unpaid overtime.
