The exa lawsuit deadline is nearing. Only 836 exa have signed on for an attempt at justice.

If youre an exa what have you heard? Why havent our fellow exas signed up? Iam hearing in my market that managers have been notified and are tellimg their exas to take it easy on the labor til it blows over.

Iam 836. Get the word out
Ya right-the original

Satisfy my curiosity- what is this lawsuit, and what does going easy on staff have to so with it?

Easy on the labor not staff. Meaning make sure youre working as a manager 60 prrcent of the time and doing manual labor only 40 percent. due to the claim of the lawsuit saying we salaried exa are unfairly classified as exempt meaning salaried, because we do mostly manual labor and minimum manage. the suit argues we are owed pay over 44hr a week due to this. califonia ruled in a similar case and exas won. so now there is a national case pending eith 836 exas onboard so far.The law suit can be foubd on this forum.

Clearly people don't know about it and probably don't understand it. Also, are the managers scaring the EXA's from signing on?

I gave up on the working more hours to get ahead many years ago. I get my stuff done in my 44 and maybe add a few minutes here and there. Id join in the lawsuit just to get some extra money off the wag but dont want to risk my job.

I don't think anyone is risking their job by joining the lawsuit, that would be retaliation. My manager is aware, and he was told not to speak about it. If we win I hope they have to pay out a large sum. One thing I would like to happen is an actual 44hr week and 2 days off in a week- just like normal people..
