It was alleged that the employees were denied overtime pay. A final hearing is scheduled for October 16, 2009. The Plaintiffs alleged that Hallmark encouraged certain hourly employees to work off the clock, failed to reimburse them for business expenses, and denied them rest periods. The class is estimated to include up to 3,900 current and former employees who worked as retail merchandisers, territory assistants, installation leaders, administrative assistants and casual laborers.
