Damco Distribution Services, Inc. / Damco USA Inc.
In December 2017, SGB filed a class action lawsuit against Damco alleging that it misclassified Operations Supervisors at its Sumner, Washington warehouse as exempt from overtime compensation under the Washington Minimum Wage Act. Plaintiff alleges that the Operations Supervisors did not customarily or regularly direct the work of two or more employees or otherwise satisfy criteria for the overtime exemption.
The class was certified on October 22, 2018. The new trial date is June 24, 2019 in Pierce County Superior Court. Plaintiff is represented by SGB along with Jim Pizl of Entente Law Group in Puyallup, Washington.
