Judge Certifies Area Managers Unit

On June 3, 2013, Judge Michael Barrett certified a unit of former Area Managers who worked at Burlington's stores in Ohio and Kentucky. Notices explaining the lawsuit and consent forms, which can be used to join the case, will be mailed shortly to Area Managers who worked at these stores between March 19, 2010, and June 11, 2011, when the position was eliminated.

We have asked the Judge to "toll" or stop the clock on the overtime claims so that additional Area Managers will be eligible to join the case and those currently eligible, can claim overtime for a longer period of time. This matter is still pending.
