Assistant Managers for Petco Animal Supplies Inc. have reached an $8 million settlement of a wage-and-hour class action alleging it failed to pay assistant store managers for overtime.

Under the terms of the settlement, the 900 class members will receive nearly $9,000 each.

The motion for preliminary approval of the settlement seeks certification of a settlement class, which includes people who worked as assistant managers at Petcos in Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Pennsylvania at various times between 2010 and 2016. Our firm represented the Oregon plaintiff along with lead counsel from the other cases.

The case is Erik Kellgren v. Petco Animal Supplies Inc. et al., case number 3:13-cv-00644, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California.
