The U.S. Labor Department sued Alliance Mortgage Group and Credit Financial Services for allegedly owing more than $239,000 in back pay to about 200 loan officers it misclassified as exempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act ().

Payments owed to 51 loan officers in the company's West Palm Beach and Boca Raton offices range from $150 to about $2,150.
