The lawsuit claims that under the California overtime pay laws, Kaiser was required to pay its Account Managers overtime wages for their time worked in excess of eight hours in a workday and hours worked in excess of forty hours in any workweek. The lawsuit claims that the Account Managers working for Kaiser were managers in name only and that these employees failed to meet all the criteria under any of the exemptions to overtime pay in California. As a result, the lawsuit alleges that these employees should have been paid for all the overtime hours they worked for Kaiser.
