CBRE Class Action
This case alleges that CBRE misclassified its facility managers as exempt from overtime and other protections under California and federal law. Facility managers at CBRE don’t supervise anyone and perform their work under tight controls from above. They are assigned so many locations that traveling to them for required inspections and to facilitate repairs often fills a full-time week. The never-ending paperwork related to the repairs and maintenance means they work overtime, which CBRE refuses to pay. And on top of that, CBRE takes advantage of not paying facility managers overtime by using them as the repositories for an array of requests from throughout the organization.
While “sending the facility manager,” may be the most profitable solution for CBRE, employees should not be exploited in this way. We filed this lawsuit to put an end to these illegal and harmful practices.
