On July 14, 2020, GessnerLaw, PLLC filed a nationwide collective action lawsuit on behalf of Robert E. Stafford, Jr. and all current and former Shift Managers/Shift Manager trainees who are or have been employed by Bojangles’ Restaurants Inc. (“Bojangles”) since July 14, 2017.

The Amended Complaint alleges that Bojangles violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) by requiring and/or permitting Shift Managers/Shift Manager Trainees to work off the clock, which resulted in a failure to pay at least minimum wage, failure to pay for all hours worked and failure to pay an overtime premium for all overtime hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week, thus denying shift managers payment of all earned wages and overtime wages.

On November 2, 2020, U.S. District Judge Max O. Cogburn granted conditional certification of a nationwide collective action of Bojangles’ Shift Managers/Shift Manager Trainees. As part of its Order, the Court approved the distribution of notice to Bojangles’ Shift Managers/Shift Manager Trainees to inform them about this lawsuit.

Mr. Stafford, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated seeks to recover unpaid wages plus interest, liquidated damages, costs and fees and penalties as allowed for Bojangles’ violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and North Carolina Wage and Hour Act (NCWHA).
