Bed Bath & Beyond hit with overtime pay suit


Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. is being accused of shorting the wages of employees by not paying them for overtime.

The class action lawsuit, filed in New Jersey’s Middlesex County Superior Court, accuses the home goods retailer of violating the state’s Wage and Hour Law by not paying some of its employees time-and-a-half for hours worked over 40 hours.

According to, the retailer paid employees under a “fluctuating OT” scheme that essentially penalized them by reducing their hourly overtime rate the more hours they worked.

The suit also alleges the retailer improperly classified some of its workers with the state as exempt employees as a way to not pay them overtime.

The lawsuit seeks alleged unpaid overtime to the people who filed the suit and other current and former Bed Bath & Beyond employees, the report said.
