Taco Bell Unpaid Overtime Class Action Lawsuit
By Matt O’Donnell
Taco Bell has been hit with a class action lawsuit claiming the restaurant chain forces employees to work off-the-clock and does not pay them all the regular and overtime wages they’re owed.
The Taco Bell wage lawsuit was filed by Alicia Sloan, a former shift manager at Taco Bell for eight years. Sloan claims in the class action lawsuit that Taco Bell managers in Florida force employees to work off-the-clock and shave hours from employees’ time cards so that they don’t get paid for all the hours they work. This is in direct response to an “unrealistic” labor hour budget set by Taco Bell in order to control its costs, she claims.
This is the not the first time Taco Bell has faced allegations of not paying overtime. In 1997, a court found the company guilty of failing to pay overtime to thousands of employees in Washington state. Four years later, workers in Oregon successfully brought a class action lawsuit against Taco Bell that made similar claims to Sloan’s — that Taco Bell managers altered employees’ time cards and didn’t pay them all the overtime wages they were owed.
Taco Bell workers sued a franchisee in 2010 over the same allegations, claiming it violated the U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act by refusing to pay overtime to thousands of workers in six states.
The most recent Taco Bell unpaid overtime class action lawsuit case is Alicia Stone v. Taco Bell of America, Inc., Case No. 12-cv-00659, Florida Middle District Court, Orlando.
