ORLANDO, Fla. — The Publix grocery store chain is facing a federal lawsuit.
It claims the company required hourly assistant department managers to work off-the-clock without being paid overtime.
Lawyers for the workers released a statement that said, “It’s unacceptable to force hourly workers to work outside of their shifts and to not pay workers for their time.”
A spokesperson for Publix said they take the claims seriously and will respond appropriately.
Channel 9 will continue to monitor the lawsuit and provide updates on Eyewitness News.
