First Amended Complaint


Class Action Settlement

Case Summary

This collective action lawsuit is brought on behalf of Executive Management Trainees (EMTs) employed by Genuine Parts Company-NAPA nationwide at any time from July 1, 2012 to the present. Bryan Schwartz Law represents Plaintiff Sean Mar and several other former EMTs who have already opted-into the suit, who allege that NAPA misclassified EMTs as exempt from overtime under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and California’s wage and hour laws. After an extensive exchange of documents, a deposition of a top company manager, and filing a motion for conditional certification, Plaintiff agreed to settle with NAPA so that 100 EMTs and former EMTs will be paid $775,000 plus the employer’s share of payroll taxes and the costs of the settlement administrator, minus attorneys’ fees and the costs of litigation. NAPA is also reclassifying the EMT position to be non-exempt in 2016, so that going forward, all EMTs will earn overtime when they work over 40 hours in a week (or 8 hours in a day, in California). Collective action members must submit forms to the settlement administrator in order to recover in this settlement.
