Scott Cole & Associates filed this nation-wide (and California State) class action against Fastenal on behalf of all of the company’s Branch Managers to recover overtime pay and related penalties. In addition, the lawsuit alleges Fastenal violated California law by failing to pay its California Branch Managers overtime compensation and denying them meal and rest periods. In 2011, the court conditionally certified a collective action under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, allowing any Fastenal Branch Manager across the nation to join in the case.
