Management Employees ("Keyholders") And Unpaid Time
Some management employees (also known as “keyholders”) at Famous Footwear say they are unable to leave the store for meal or rest breaks. Instead, they may have been required to stay present at the store. California employment law says if workers are unable to take these breaks, they are entitled to one hour of pay for each missed break.
If you are a keyholder who has been unable to leave the store for your breaks, we would like to hear from you.
