Overbrook man settles lawsuit with Wal-Mart concerning overtime pay

An Overbrook man and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. have apparently settled the man's proposed federal class-action lawsuit seeking overtime pay for current and former assistant managers.

James Jenko filed the lawsuit in February and a judge never approved the lawsuit as a class action, so the settlement apparently only covers his individual claims.

Jenko, a former assistant manager, claimed that the Bentonville, Ark., retailer was violating state wage laws by not paying assistant managers overtime. The company, which has 133 stores in Pennsylvania, denied that state law requires it to pay the eight to 10 assistant managers at each store overtime.

Lawyers for both sides on Monday filed a motion to dismiss the case and the court docket shows they reached an agreement during mediation. The filing doesn't provide any details of the settlement and the lawyers and a company spokesperson couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
