Casey's Settlement for Overtime Wages

The Des Moines Register is reporting that local class action lawsuit against Casey's General Stores goes to a federal judge for approval of a settlement entered into with the parties.  Casey's would agree to pay $12.1 million for employees who were required to work off-the-clock, including cooks and assistant managers.

This case continues to remind employers that requiring non-exempt employees to work overtime needs to be properly compensated.  In fact, the argument has been successfully made in situations where the employer did not even authorize the overtime, yet still was required to pay overtime.
