U.S. Bank Employees Sue for Unpaid Overtime Wages
Stephan Zouras, LLP represents AML/BSA Investigators in a class and collective action seeking unpaid earned overtime wages against U.S. Bank National Association.
On August 15, 2017, a nationwide class and collective action lawsuit was filed against U.S. Bank to vindicate its misclassification of certain employees as “exempt” from overtime under federal and state wage laws.
Class members include anyone who worked as Anti-Money Laundering/Bank Secrecy Act Preliminary Investigators (“AML/BSA Preliminary Investigators”), Anti-Money Laundering/Bank Secrecy Act Special Investigators (“AML/BSA Special Investigators”) or other similarly-titled position anywhere in the United States during the last three (3) years.
Based on recent precedent and guidance from the U.S. Department of Labor, Plaintiffs contend that that AML/BSA Investigators are not properly classified as “exempt” and must be compensated at a rate of one-and-a-half times their regular rate of pay for all time worked in excess of 40 hours in any given workweek.
Plaintiffs seek redress under the Fair Labor Standards Act “FLSA” and applicable state wage laws. We seek to recover unpaid earned overtime wages, liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees and other damages.
