Workers at Bank of America’s retail branches and call centers in five states, including Florida, have filed a lawsuit claiming they are due unpaid overtime from the banking giant.
The suit, filed in federal district court in Kansas, alleges the bank requires employees to work more than 40 hours per week, but only pays them for 40.
As a result, the employees say, the bank owes as many as 180,000 workers overtime pay for those additional hours.
Note: This is just another indication that plaintiffs’ attorneys are zeroing in on overtime violations. Now is the time for employers to review their practices on pay, breaks and all things related to the Fair Labor Standards Act and correct any problems they find.
