McDonald’s faces fresh lawsuit on overtime pay

Two former managers of McDonald’s Co. (Japan) Ltd. plan to file a lawsuit with the Tokyo District Court in March demanding the hamburger chain pay them ¥7 million in unpaid overtime allowances, sources close to the matter have said.

The move comes on the heels of a court ruling on a similar lawsuit filed by a McDonald’s manager from Saitama Prefecture. In late January, the court ruled that the manager had little authority as an managerial-level employee and deserved overtime pay in accordance with the Labor Standards Law.
