What is this lawsuit about?

Former Petco Assistant Managers (“AMs”) sued Petco Animal Supplies, Inc., Petco Holdings, Inc., Petco Holdings, Inc. LLC, and Petco Animal Supplies Stores, Inc. (together “Petco”), alleging that they were not paid overtime for hours worked over 40 in a workweek.  The AMs claim that they are owed money under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and/or the state laws of Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Pennsylvania.  Petco denies these allegations and asserts that its pay practices for AMs complied with all legal requirements.  Without admitting liability, Petco agreed to a settlement to avoid further litigation.

A more detailed description of this lawsuit and important court documents may be found on the Key Documents page of this website.
