Employers not only hurt their employees, but they cheat California taxpayers
Orange County, CA (PRWEB) December 21, 2012
The Los Angeles Employment Attorneys at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action lawsuit against Union Bank, N.A. on December 20, 2012, alleging that Union Bank failed to pay their salaried Asset Review Analysts overtime pay even though these employees worked in excess of 8 hours in a workday and more than 40 hours in a workweek. Fay, et al. v. Union Bank, N.A., Case No. 30-2012-00619717 is currently pending in the Orange County Superior Court for the State of California.
According to the overtime class action Complaint filed against the banking institution, the company allegedly violated California state labor laws by failing to pay their Asset Review Analysts for the overtime hours they worked. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the Asset Review Analysts regularly worked in excess of eight (8) hours in a workday and forty (40) hours in a workweek primarily engaging in non-exempt job tasks such as inputting financial data into spreadsheets and producing loan status reports for upper management at Union Bank. The Complaint states that as a result of the alleged misclassification, Union Bank systematically underpaid overtime compensation to these employees.
Norman B. Blumenthal, the managing partner of the firm representing the Plaintiffs in this case, stated “by misclassifying their employees as exempt from overtime pay, employers not only hurt their employees, but they cheat California taxpayers."
