Wells Fargo IT Workers Overtime
Result: $6.72 million settlement
Lewis v. Wells Fargo & Co. IT Workers Overtime Lawsuit
Lieff Cabraser served as Lead Counsel on behalf of approximately 330 I/T workers who alleged that Wells Fargo had a common practice of misclassifying them as exempt and failing to pay them for all overtime hours worked in violation of federal and state overtime pay laws. In April 2011, the Court granted collective action certification of the FLSA claims, and approved a $6.72 million settlement of the action.
Settlement checks were mailed to class members on June 21, 2011.
