Avis Class Action Lawsuit Over Shift Manager Pay | Avis Budget Car Rental & Rent A Car FLSA Overtime Pay Collective Action

Avis Class Action Lawsuit Over Shift Manager Pay Under Fair Labor Standards Act FLSA To Remain Certified As A Collective Action.

A federal court has reportedly refused to decertify the Avis class action lawsuit complaint brought against Avis Budget Car Rental, LLC and Avis Rent A Car System, LLC (“Defendants” or “Avis”) in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey (styled as Frederick Ruffin Jr. and Loretta Donatelli v. Avis Budget Car Rental, LLC and Avis Rent A Car System, LLC, No. 11-1069 (SDW) (MCA)), alleging that Avis misclassified certain employees (Shift Managers) as exempt from the FLSA and failed to pay them for all hours worked as well as overtime compensation even though they allegedly performed non-exempt duties such as cleaning cars, moving cars around the parking lot, checking inventory, renting cars, and/or installing child car seats, according to the Court’s Opinion denying Avis’s Motion for Decertification of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) collective action.

The Avis Class Action Lawsuit reportedly consists of a nationwide class of Shift Managers (and other comparable positions) who “are or were formerly employed by Defendants . . . at any time since February 24, 2008 to the entry of judgment in the case.”

The Court reportedly found that the plaintiffs in the Avis Class Action Lawsuit satisfied their burden of demonstrating that they are similarly situated.

    It’s true. They have done this since the beginning of time. It was often difficult to get hourly employees to become managers because they didn’t want to work 60 hours per week and make $10,000 less per year.
