Proof of Purchase
Tobias Mooneyham and Derek Sleve v. AVI Food Systems Inc., Case No. 1:17-cv-00103-DCN, District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division
Two former Supervisors who worked for AVI brought a lawsuit against AVI entitled Mooneyham, et al. v. AVI Food Systems, Inc., et al., Case No. 1:17-cv-103. They claim that Supervisors were not paid overtime in any week in which they worked more than 40 hours, as they contend is required by federal and state law. Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that, despite AVI’s corporate expectation that Supervisors’ primary duty is to supervise and manage the performance of Route Drivers and CSAs, their primary duties did not differ substantially from those performed by Route Drivers and CSAs, and included tasks such as driving a vehicle, carrying and stocking merchandise, and servicing vending machines. As a consequence, Mooneyham and Sleve claim that they, and other Supervisors, are entitled to overtime pay.
AVI adamantly denies any wrongdoing or violation of any laws or regulations and asserts that Route and CSA Supervisors are properly classified as overtime-exempt based upon their management duties and oversight of Route Drivers and CSAs. By settling, neither AVI, nor the Supervisors who filed the lawsuit (“Settlement Class Representatives”), make concessions as to the merits of their claims against AVI. The Parties have entered into this Agreement to avoid the risks, uncertainty, expense and burden of further litigation.
