GNC Employee Class Action Lawsuit

By Mike Holter

 

GNC(LEGAFI) -- General Nutrition Corp. has been hit with a class action lawsuit for numerous labor law violations, including allegedly making employees work off the clock, making them work during breaks, and not paying them overtime.

The GNC employee class action lawsuit accuses the company of, for at least the past four years, preventing employees from taking meal and rest breaks, not paying them for the missed breaks, requiring employees to work off the clock when they worked by themselves without any other employee support, and not allowing employees to complete an uninterrupted, off-duty 30-minute meal break.

The GNC employee class action lawsuit is brought on behalf of three classes of individuals: (1) all non-exempt hourly employees of GNC who worked by themselves as Sales Consultants and/or Assistant Managers in California from July 21, 2007 through the present; (2) all GNC employees who worked as Sales Consultants and Assistant Managers who worked shifts by themselves without support and were entitled to and failed to receive meal periods of rest breaks from July 19, 2007 through the present; and (3) all non-exempt hourly employees who worked during the closing shift and/or worked shifts where the employee worked by themselves as Sales Consultants and/or Assistant Mangers in California, and who performed work after their shift ended from July 21, 2007 to the present.

The GNC class action is seeking general damages, special damages, restitution of back pay due to employees, penalties, and other relief.

The case is Charles Brewer v. General Nutrition Corporation, Case No. 11-CV-3587, United States District Court, Northern District of California.
