$20 million dollar settlement – Puchalski v. Taco Bell Corp.

FAST FOOD RESTAURANT MANAGER OVERTIME LITIGATION
Summary: A class action complaint was filed against Taco Bell alleging that it misclassified its salaried restaurant general managers and market training managers as exempt and wrongfully denied them overtime pay.

Result: Following a four month class action trial, lead trial counsel Jones Law Firm secured a $20 million dollar settlement on behalf of salaried restaurant general managers and market training managers who worked for Taco Bell Corp.  The settlement amount recovered on behalf of the class members represents one of the highest dollar per work week settlements for unpaid overtime for executive exempt managers.
