Have you worked as a Location Manager or Function (or Functional) Manager for HERTZ CORP, or any of its brands, such as Dollar or Thrifty, during the period of December 2015 to the present? If so, we would like to speak to you about your work history.
In December, 2018, former location and function manager, Bamidele Aiyekusibe filed this lawsuit against the HERTZ corporation, individually and on behalf of all present and former Location and Function Managers working for HERTZ within the preceding 3 years to the present in airport locations across the United States. Mr. Aiyehusibe has since been joined by 2 more location/function managers who from the BWI HERTZ/DOLLAR THRIFTY airport location, Mischele Higginson and Shatal Brown-Winn. Now, the Plaintiffs seek to recover overtime wages for all Dollar/Thrifty Location and Function Managers, and to obtain a judgment from the court declaring their current pay practice of refusing to pay overtime wages to these managers as unlawful.
The case is styled as:
