Hopman v. Starbucks Coffee Canada Inc.

August 12, 2020

Unpaid Overtime Class Action

What this class action is about

The proposed class action has been commenced on behalf of all current and former employees of Starbucks Coffee Canada Inc. (“Starbucks”) 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 maintains that Starbucks violated the ESA and its contracts of employment with its Store Managers by misclassifying them as exempt from overtime under the ESA and failing to pay overtime pay in accordance with the ESA.

The Plaintiff, Trevor Hopman, resides in Toronto, Ontario. He was employed as a store manager at Starbucks from 2010 to 2017.
