The operator of a national chain of fitness centers agreed to settle the wage claims of over 860 trainers and managers for about $17.5 million. In Beauperthuy v. 24 Hour Fitness, the trainers alleged that they were required to work off the clock without pay, and were also not paid for overtime. The managers alleged they were misclassified as exempt and were also owed overtime. Up to $6.6 million of the settlement will go towards attorneys' fees and costs. The settlement must be approved by the federal district court for the Northern District of California.
