Publix Managers File Unpaid Overtime Class Action Lawsuit

. By
Tallahassee, FL (Press Release)A class action lawsuit was filed against Publix in federal court in Panama City, Florida, by four department managers asserting they were improperly paid overtime. (Castoro-Harrigan, et. al v. Publix, United States District Court, Northern District of Florida, Case No. 5:12-cv-113). The filed complaint states Publix failed to properly include the value of quarterly and year-end bonuses in the calculation of the manager's overtime. The complaint also asserts these managers should have been paid at a rate of “time and one-half” for their overtime hours, rather than the “half time” fluctuating work week (or “Chinese Overtime”) method used by Publix.

Publix schedules its department managers and assistant managers to work a tremendous amount of overtime each week, according to the complaint. These managers seek to represent a class of managers in similar positions which would expand the case to cover all current and former department managers and assistant department managers who worked overtime in the past 3 years in Publix’s 1,051 stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and Tennessee. (Number of Stores According to Publix's web page: http://www.publix.com/about/FactsAndFigures.do).

The suit was filed by Tallahassee, Florida attorneys Sean Culliton (seanculliton.com) and John C. Davis (johndavislaw.net).

In 2011 I was fired after 6 years of service to Publix for cleaning up the deli sub station that was so bad when I came in that you as a customer and me as a customer would not eat there period. They said that I was closing it down, which I would not do, it was only 5pm. We do not close until 10 pm. It was just humiliating. The store manager was very arrogant and I think he had an agenda. I tried to get my job back but the corporate office said I could not come back for 3 years, I waited the 3 years, I applied after 3years, I was rejected again and they said another 3 years. No explanation! It was very funny that I was the only person the store manager would ask to work overtime when someone would call out. I now work for their competitor and I am very happy!!!! Everyone I worked with were very angry with him and they decided to leave Publix. The Jenkins family were friends of my family in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Mr. Jenkins opened a lot of Publix's with the help of my father who was the President of the Chamber of Commerce in Ft. Lauderdale and Pompano Beach, Fla. He would be rolling over in his grave right now if he knew how the management was running and treating there employees. Publix now hires criminals for there managers. there records are made public.. So why do you have to take a drug test and they look at your criminal record... maybe they want to make you a manager!!!!!

Publix has supervisors that stoled thousands of dollars out of the cash room for months but only asked him to pay it back. And a Riss kid can due a sexual assault on a employee twice and nothing happens to them except a talking to making the work environment stressful for the other employee yet the supervisor does nothing because he is a Riss kid so not legally nor morally right but it's happening they are dishonest and tell you the will take care of the issue but do nothing and then you get demoted from you staff job for making the sexual harassment report to there attention along with the witness to prove it but it gets swept under the rug and the other female employee gets punished it's a same and it makes me sick you can steal and
Can do sexual harassment without punishment that SUCKS

Publix will NOT Allways be a Fortune 100!
Ex 16 year employee. There has always been an obvious Brown Noser Club, but not so obvious as it is now. And when a company does start replacing off of its hard working but expensive employees with cheap untrained and unhappy part timers, the quality of the company and the happieness of the customers suffers. The people at Publix Corp aren't stupid. They know this will ruin the company. They don't care! It will take years to drive the whole place into the ground, and by then they will all be more then rich enough to retire early and happy! There's no one left (that care the way George did) to stop them!
FYI : I was never a manager. Never wanted to be. Never tried to be. Never treated badly. Never had problems. I was always a cake decorator, and always did my thing on the side lines, so I have no reason to "just be bitter and angry" with Publix. So my comments on what an awful place it is today, are strictly as an observer. I have witnessed a lot of BS in my years. I have seen more then enough people get thrown under a bus for no real reason, except that someone else wanted to put them under that bus! Those people are horrible. And an associates "life" should be at home with their families, not at Publix with their heads forced up the A$$ of some manager that thinks he/she is some kind of Publix King/Queen! A job is meant to to finance a life at home with families, not to be a life sentence in hell!

I was never a manager, but did apply for upper management positions during the 29 (plus) years I was with Publix. I did not work in retail, but in the warehouse division. I started off in production, and was promoted to floor management, called a Line Leader, which was an hourly management position. I was then promoted to a highly technical position, of which played a huge part in the operations of the plant. During the time I was in this technical position, I applied for various positions within Publix and was denied. I was a loyal and dedicated employee, with great attendance, and an employee that gave well over 100%. I had the best of evaluations that one could possibly expect, yet still was not given the opportunity for advancement. The story continues...
During the last couple of years with Publix, I was injured while lifting some heavy product. Now, even though I then worked in an office environment, we were made to go into production during production staff shortage, and help out. This usually meant lifting 50 lbs repeatedly. After the injury occurred, Publix sent me to their employee clinic which was a total JOKE. I was made to perform physical therapy when I had just injured my neck, which turned out to be a herniated disk. Well, the Publix employee clinic tried to pull it off that I had a stained muscle. I had to repeatedly ask to be sent for an MRI or a doctor (as I had gone to therapy with no doctor examination), then after several weeks was finally sent for the MRI. The MRI showed I had a herniated disk in my neck, therefore, I should have been allowed to rest the area, not put more stress on it with therapy. The physical therapy should have come later, once the inflammation had a chance to go down. So...Publix was wrong in sending me to THEIR clinic for improper medical treatment. The story continues...
I was then put on workers comp, but yet I did not miss work, and was allowed the benefit to not have to help out in the production areas, I then was able to do MY job. By doing MY job, I was able to continue working without incident. THEN, management came to my department, which consists of just 6 people, and told us we would be responsible for cleaning 4 floors of the plant. This cleaning takes place, along with our already overload of responsibilities of keeping the plant running on a 24/7 basis. This facility, along with all other Publix manufacturing facilities, have their own cleaning department..it's called the Sanitation Department. This sanitation department, in no way, could possibly perform any duty of the technical position in the department I was in. As I was instructed to do, I tried my best to keep these 4 floors clean, however, pushing around industrialized vacuum cleaners, brooms, and mops created extra pain in my neck injury. Due to this, I asked my manager if I could get help from the sanitation department, he said there wasn't anyone to help. R-E-A-L-L-Y???!!! I didn't argue with the manager, but thought to myself, the cleaning is sanitation's responsibilities!!! My responsibilities is to run the plant!! Well, upon cleaning the massive 4 floors of the plant a couple of times, I reported back to management that the work was too much for me with the injury, and asked if I could just perform MY job. This was the end of my career with Publix, as they removed me from my long standing position, and told me if I could not clean the building, then they could not use me. WOW, I was one of the highest paid hourly employees that Publix has company wide , yet they could not get the SANITATION DEPARTMENT to do their job so I could do mine.
I had just under 1,000 hours of sick time that I COULD NOT USE, I could not get FMLA due to the doctor's statement that I could perform some type of work, I could not draw from worker's compensation, so no paycheck of any type.
Here's the kicker...once Publix removed me from my LONG STANDING position (because I couldn't do their added cleaning responsibilities), they gave me 52 weeks to find another position within the company. Having been one of the highest hourly paid employees, there was nothing available to match the income of which Publix took from me. I did, however, apply fro positions, and was turned down for each one.
So...I injured myself at Publix, they came up with a way to get rid of me, and without having to pay unemployment (of which I have never drawn in my life), and denied me further of any opportunities during the 52 week "so called grace period".
During my almost 30 years with Publix, I can truthfully say that the company is NOT what they claim to the public to be. I was there during the time of George Jenkins, and after his passing I saw major changes...none were for the employees. I will say this, if you have a family member or friend that is in higher management, you can expect to have opportunities not available to the rest of the employees. As well, if you are in their Good 'Ole Boy club, you can expect opportunities to come way. Not to mention any "other" favors managers get that will allow certain individuals advancement. Believe me, I was there for almost 30 years, and saw it all.

Number one, I've applied for management for the last 14 years, I have 30 years experience, but I can't get promoted because I am a White Male, which tends to skew any dreams of "Diversity". Also, what about this bullsh*t where I'm scheduled for eight hours per day at the beginning of the week, then expected to work much longer than that, and then I'm forced to take off the overtime later in the week. I have NO option; I will be disciplined if I fail to do so. Also, I'm supposed to receive 2 ten minute paid breaks per shift, but they are routinely stolen from me, so in essence, I work 20 minutes per day for free!

I'm leaving my comment regarding Publix supermarket and taking care of their managers. I was a department manager for 25 years. I just retired with 35 years at Publix. I did retire with at least a million dollars in my retirement. Publix said they gave me that retirement, but I earned every dime of it. When I first started at Publix many years ago they cared about me as an associate. They don't care about anyone anymore you are just another associate too them, that's replaceable.I was a manager that truly love publix.I came in too work and gave publix 110 % everyday.When I retired I had over 995 hours of sick days that I never took. I loved my job until the last 10 years. I seemed to always be managing locations with no help. The other department managers that were their before I was had more full time help and labor hours. I felt that I was being taken advantage of ,because I didn't have enough associates too get all my job task done. I was a manager that always had too work late or work 12 hours a day. I stopped feeling good about my position so I retired. I felted that's what they wanted me too do .No publix does not take care of their managers or their associates . You have too be envovled in their buddy system. If the upper management likes you they take of you if not your on own.Too Bad Too Sad because PUBLIX use too be a great company too work for. Now your just an associate with a social security number. I still shop at Publix their are a lot of publix associates that know me.I get to hear from different associates weekly regarding how publix only wants to give them a 15 cent raise or a 25 cent raise: I think that's terrible because publix has some great associates that takes good care of their customers. It's sad what can you buy with 25 cents ???? Really!!!! Figure it out that's no raise. Yea well do they take care of their associates ????

I use to work for publix for over 20 years. They use to be a good company to work for but in the last past 5 years are so they have really started to expect to much out of one person. They try to work you to death. Mangers should have taken this law suit out long time ago.they need to go back to beIng the way they were. You can tell that the same people is NOT running Publix anymore.

All I got to Say is that I've worked for publix for a good while now. Most of it as a manager. I will be a millionaire while still in my early to mid 40s. Good luck in any job, college or no college, achieving that. Publix, with their awesome benefits, more than makes up for any short comings with their fww and/or long hours. If anyone works excessively long hours, it's only because they don't know how to manage their time and get out on time as scheduled

Shame on Publix paying a department manager anywhere from $60 to $80K a year and an assistant department Manager $40 to $45k a year. You all should be embarrassed coming on here crying about what you make and how you are/were paid. If anyone of you think that you can find a job making what you with the benefits you have with out a college degree then I'd suggest you take. If not then by thankful for what you havem

I have worked for Publix for over 20 years. I love Publix, but do not think that Publix loves me. 85 years ago, Mr George started a business that always stressed service. How can you continue service levels that were set with 20 associates, (estimated numbers), with 10 associates? How can you do the same job with half as many associates? I know that we were very over staffed when I began with Publix, but wow, they have cut the workforce into lean. There was fat to be removed, but they have gone to far, walking on the associates in the name of profit. If one person calls in sick, you are doomed for the day.
Also, to anyone who does not think Publix is still not a "good ole boy" company, think again. They installed parameters, but still work the Good Ole Boy network inside that network. you are either in, or you are out. It does not matter how much you may bleed for the company, how much you are willing to give, you are either in, or you are out. I do not believe that Publix cares for me, not one iota. If I was gone tomorrow, no one would miss me at all, and I have been here for over 20 years.

I am wondering why this doesn't include all managers that worked extended overtime hours and were only paid half of half time. I worked for publix almost 23 years and 15 years as a deli manager. I worked long and hard and had no home life to speak of. we were told publix comes first if you want to be a manager.

thanks for listening

The other point I wanted to mention was that Publix does a lot of talking about the dignity of their employees. Two very real and consistent behaviors they demonstrate smacks you in the face with disrespect. The fact that they do not pay over time wages over 40 hours to managers shows how little they do respect and value their workers. After working 40 hrs they expect managers to work 10 more hours, or more, and then pay them less. Thats not very kind or respectful, and is a direct insult to the dignity of the employee.

The other thing is scheduling you to close at 11 PM and then to open the next day at 6 AM. This is a regular and consistent practice. Again, how does that respect the dignity of the employee?

Publix has some good points, but the bad ones make it not worth it.

I work for publix and have for 3 years. Their managers are not educated in managing people. They know how to run reports and make pretty displays, but thats not all a manager does. The company loves gossip and drama and listens to it as if it has authority. There is a punitive and juvenile punishing mentality in this company and it must start at the top. After reading these comments from different States, I am now convinced of that. Thank God its not my career but only a stepping stone. I DON'T DRINK THE PUBLIX KOOL-AID!! NEVER WILL.

Look ya'll, I'm trying to be understanding and fair, but everyone knows retail is not a career choice. I guarantee everyone is there for one of two reasons:
1) They lost their previous job from an employer that was in their career path, and this is now the only job they can find
2) They never received a higher education, and sadly, like many Americans, this is what the outcome is..the retail industry.

Newsflash..if you have worked in a retail environment for more than 4 years, and you are over the age of 24, then apparently you are not doing much with your life anyway, and I don't feel bad for ya'll.

You know what I'm a Publix manager and like everyone else that got promoted within the fww timeframe we ALL signed a form agreeing to our pay rate/scale and I think we are very well compensated for the hours we put in this is coming from a bunch of managers who either didn't get a promotion or got demoted/fired for being a piss poor manager so if you didn't like the pay nobody held a gun to your head to get promoted did they???

Omg , nice comment McGowan ( NOT ). Its jerks like you that Mr. George despised. Hey i heard you are no longer in brevard county? No wonder why ( its not orlando there ) ! Oh and before ya fire people in the future for things that dont happen @ work consult the unemployment divison. And get the facts straight! You screwed me and messed up many lives ....

Most of you can't handle what we expect from you. We have high quality standards and you can't make it. We choose who we wish to promote. We do not recognize any form of seniority in retail. We do strive hard to promote the ones who we feel do a good job, clean cut, good looking, and minorities only. All the people you call "good ole boys" are out of jealousy. There has been only rumors for years about the annual golf tournament be a good ole boys club. It was just because you were upset you didn't get invited.

I know what all you publix people mean on this board. . I moved to new area and started at new store,. I was so hurt, bullied, belittled, by my dept manager for a year, i had 12 years in with publix, family of 6, 4 children, publix was my business, i would dress up nice, loved it. . But this new store i moved to took all that away. . . Being full time getting not 40 hours but 37 - 39 hours a week, my schedule was nuts, closing (11pm) then opening (6am) , ten hour days with 3 days, , working like 3 to 5 hours, 6 days on, , i would speak to my dept manager but she would be rude and mad, mean. . . I was a great worker at ever store i been too in the past,. . Customers loved me, workers loved me,. Store manager had it in for me, and so did deli dept manager. . Being called into the office once, sometimes twice a week for drama, things i knew nothing of. . Was told i stink couple of times, was told not to wear jackets off the clock, cause i looked like a thug. . Yelled at in front of other workers, was told i wasn't sick after being out of work for a week with ecoli food poisoning, i was questioned in the office by my store manager, dept manager, i was in tears crying in that office they didn't even care. . , asking me all kinds of questions. I asked my doctor to print me out paper work to show my manager's, he would not, doctor said; its private and they don't have the right to ask you questions about what you had. . . Crazy cause i'm one who never calls in sick, or never late for work. . So managers wrote me up. . It was just a living hell in that store, no one in the store even liked our dept manager, other managers would tell me things about her how male workers don't last with her. My dept manager would pick her female friends and make that dept like a drama show, it was really crazy. . I started getting so sick over this whole thing, told my wife i just don't feel like going in to my business anymore. . . After my transfer request never happen, other dept managers wanted to take me, they would say its your manager she don't want you to leave her dept. . . Gone to h. R. , every time i would call him, i would get voice mail box, i would leave a message in tears, no call back. .Come to find out h. R. Neil, would call my dept manager or my store manager hear them speak first then judge me. . And yes i did work for publix 12 years, 4 months, my bring home was under 400. 00 dollars a week. I learned at publix about stink meetings, labor dollars, p and l reports, boar's head drives publix deli people to sell, and if they do not they will be graded, demo, cutting hours, hire new part time workers cause full timers cost more. . Never will i forget what our dept manager said to us at a stink meeting, if full timers can't sell, be proactive, then you will be replaced with a part timers. . I guess that's how you talk to stock holders. Store manager was pretty much a jackass who never really cared about anything or nothing, you would try and speak to him he walks away. . Not a care in the world making all that money can't take time to speak to his workers. . Open door?? Really sad to do this to a stock owner who once loved publix, even after i left publix, i never got my 10 year award,. So i asked my store manager over the phone, to mail me my 10 year certified award, he goes, one wasn't made for you. . . Wow!! So had to call lakeland to get one. . Well, i'm done here, done with publix i try to still shop there but every store i go to i see things workers not with food holding code, empty sub shop, fly's buzzing around everywhere, ,. They got all them new cheap part timers, who don't know where nothing is. . . I started a new life, new business with better stocks, better future. . Peace. .

Publix sucks.( protect their employees)no they donty. No they dont fire or lay anyone off. They have cut hrs so much that if you dont clock in after 30 days its a voluntary quit. I asked for a transfer due to violence in my relationship.The 3 stores in the area had no hrs to give me. My grocery manager said i could drive back and clock in for 5 min, it would keep my employment for another 30 days. Because i could not do that i was denied unemployment. So does Publix take care of their employees,,,,,,no.

Publix is run by red neck Republicans.....the store manager at my manager meetings would tell us who we should vote for.....after working there as a meat cutter for a year I was promoted to assistant meat manager I hurt my back throwing trucks..,well as soon as the statgue of limitations ran out on my workmens comp case....they transferred me to another store were they started to write me up for things I didn't do.....I was treating with my doctor and needed a spine fusion I was working in pain filled out my fmla paperwork ...I thought I could get better and rest and have my surgery and then go back to work......my store manager called me at home and told me I had to come in.......so I went in I didn't want to loose my job after 10 years ......I went in and they fired me......I loved publix and thought they would help there managers.......when I tried to get my disability insurance they said I was working after my fmla paper work was filled out so they denied me I later got it but my point is PUBLIX DONT CARE ABOUT ANYTHING BUT PROFITABILITY!

Publix is a great place to work, especially when favored. U won't make in publix unless your favored. Then u become a slave in management with 50 hour work weeks. And when they get tired of you, they demote you or fire you for the most rediculous shit.

I too was demoted for failure to do my job as assistant but I feel how can one be demoted if you have people under you that don't want to do what is required of them for pay which is WORK plus having dept mgr that has told other mgrs that they really didn't want you as their assistant

There will be the odd ones who got lucky ...but the reality is that all of the negative thread accurately reflect the associates who work there now....the people who really made Publix succeed and gave it their best ...

...and now the Publix Executive board is giving them their least

.... The class action lawsuit should be paid by the Board of Directors personal assets...and that goes double for the Executive board !

Publix does not lay people off, they fire people that have been there long enough for bonus and the extra $1 on sundays.. They then hire people at @$3+ per hour less with no bonus, no sundays, no extra anything. That's how they keep their prices "low". I was fired because there was a new manager that wanted to get more in her bonus. There was an altercation between me and the asst. manager. We both made a complaint. She had numerous customer complaints about how she treated her employees. I had none. On more than one occasion, we hourly people were told that complaining did us no good because who was upper management going to believe? The manager of the dept or some part timer. My complaint fell on deaf ears-hers put me out of a job and now no one will touch me because Publix has a new policy. You have to ask to be eligible for rehire-if they don't approve, then you are out of luck for three years. Every time some one calls to find out about me, Publix tells them I am not hirable. I actually had someone interview me and when I told them I had been fired from Publix, he made the comment that no gets fired from Publix. I must have tried to shoot the president. It is in my record that I swore at the asst. mgr and refused to go into the office with her after we, as hourly employees, had been told by our hr rep NOT to be alone with either the mgr or asst mgr without a third person to witness so insubordination was the reason for the firing. The complaint I made about her swearing at me the same time was not addressed. Publix does not care about the employees since Mr. Jenkins passed. I understand that shortly after he died, Publix was open on Sundays.

Since Publix is a private company and self insured; they do all they can to prevent the majority of their employees to earn a living wage. There are max caps of $13 an hour and the raises are anywhere from 0 to 25 cents an hour. No discounts.
1/3 of the associates are eligible for medicaid and food stamps. Meanwhile the only people who profit from Publixs gross earnings and no debt situation are the BOD and Managers. Publix employees are reminded daily that they are replaceable!

Well, must say, really smart place... Publix knows all the corners to cut, this is just one issue that is boiling right now....After many many years stuff i have seen in that place, be surprised if Micheal Moore don't stop over at a store location..They play tricks,they train associates WATCH for shrink, that's it, don't throw anything away, it will hurt your bonus, corner cutting, bad food handling, more and more part timers being hired (cheap labor, no bonus, no holiday pay, no benefits, no stock) meantime making life harder for full timers (so they quit) with family who served Publix well for many years.. lots go on behind closed door,, no reason for a trillion dollar business in America to be this selfish and to lie, cheat and train new associates this way, when Mr. George cared and loved his people,.. not professional at all.. good luck hope this is just the BEGIN..

Publix is the most nepotism infested workplaces around....I have been with them for 22+ years and I know better.
I am assistant department manager for 12+ years, that testing system they have and "finalist lists" is all BS. They promote who they want and how they want. I had a high pass on my ROI (registration of interest) test for 12 years now, and been on and off the finalist list for all this years.
Yet, they promoted people to dept. heads positions after 1-2 years after they been assistant managers, numerous times! I do not play golf with anybody, I dont go fishing with anybody and I don't kiss anybody's a**. I just do my job, and I've been in the high volume stores for 10 years now and I have to teach (show) my managers how to do the job! And they do not like people like me. They are asking for more legal troubles in the near future, it's just a matter of time. The company is run by arrogant "old boys club" rednecks, and if you are not a member of their club, forget it.

You all need to grow up Publix is always has been and always will be a great company to work for. No other company in in the country can say they have over 100k employees and have never laid a single one off. In the world we live in thats amazing. Ive worked for restaurants that i came to work and there was a bolt lock on the door. Forget lay offs and compansation packages. Nobody has jobs. I understand years ago Publix was in better shape but if you look at what theyve done just to keep my grocery bill low and not hick up there prices like every other company in this country has recently its amazing with the rise in transfortation costs and fuel and everything else that a gallon of milk at publix doesnt cost 10dollars. Thats because of the sacrifice of our Publix manager/associates and all their hard work. So remember that next time you complain that you get half time instead of time and a half. Because all us managers are still getting our salary(which is very good even compaired to people with 4the year degrees) which most of us do not. I have the upmost trust and reapect in this company and the leadership it has not only to do the right thing for our cuatomers but for us associates/managers. The enviroment, and all the millions of people you rely on Publix that dont even work for us like vendors shippers. And even FPL yeah the light company that Publix give electricity to so they can avoid brown outs during the year. So if your dumb enough to think suing Publix is going to help you get whats (owed) to you your an idiot and you should try and work for albertsons or winn dixie and see how life is over there..... as in hmmm maybe i have a job when i come in to work today and maybe they close half the company today and im on the street

I agree Publix is the type of company that's full of Bs. They use you up and then toss you aside. It doesn't matter how loyal you've been to this company! If they want you out you are out! .

i worked way too long for this company most of it in management..the whole philosophy and mission statement they try to sell is total bullsh#t..i think it is hilarious that they are now no longer a fortune 100 company...they have fallen from grace and for good reason..look at the leadership and everything ed, todd, chuck, etc..are doing..there is nothing you can do other than rid yourself of this cancer on your life.. they are very political and if they want you out, they will find a reason to crucify you.

I was a manager for Publix for 12 years and on Oct 21 they demoted me to office staff and because of this demotion I was not paid the year end bonus that I had worked all year for. I was demoted 2 weeks before the cut off of this bonus being elegible to me. I was demoted because an associate said I was being mean to her. Well as it turns out that associate has now quit publix and I am still working for nothing. is there anything I can do?
