Kroger Company is one of the largest retailers in America and also turns out to be in the top 10 retailers for drugs. Founded and headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, the company has over 2,500 stores. Being the second largest retailer in the US, the company also employs in excess of 340,000 people.
Kroger employees are often required to work additional time before and after their scheduled shift. With the exception of some upper management positions, the pharmacy chain must pay overtime to workers who work more than forty hours per week. However, many employers deny requests for overtime pay or simply refuse to pay overtime wages.
Employers often deny or unlawfully refuse to pay overtime by misclassifying the positions of the workers, requiring them to report to work early but not “punch the clock” until later, striking hours off time cards, or not paying them for work before the shift starts and after the employee punches out for the day. These are violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and can give rise to an overtime pay lawsuit.
