Starbucks Canada Class Action

Goldblatt Partners LLP is counsel in a proposed class action against Starbucks Coffee Canada, Inc. (“Starbucks”).

The proposed class action has been commenced on behalf of all current and former employees of Starbucks Coffee Canada Inc. who held the position of Store Manager at Starbucks-operated stores in Ontario from October 1, 2014 to the date of certification.

The statement of claim alleges, among other things, that Starbucks Store Managers in the Province of Ontario are “working managers” who are entitled to overtime pursuant to Ontario’s Employment Standards Act, 2000 (the “ESA”). It claims that Starbucks violated the ESA and its contracts of employment with its Store Managers by misclassifying them as persons who are not entitled to overtime under the ESA and for failing to pay them overtime pay in accordance with the ESA.
