Sears Holdings Management Corp. has agreed to pay $5 million to end a proposed class action accusing the retail giant of misclassifying about 700 employees at Sears and Kmart retail stores as “overtime exempt” in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
So far 657 class members have opted into the collective action, according to the settlement. The FLSA class would include all Plaintiffs who opted into the suit as well as class members from a second related class action as of July 14.
