The complaint asserts that these are all non-exempt job tasks and the Social Services Directors should have been paid overtime wages. As a result, the lawsuit seeks an unspecified amount of back overtime wages for current and former Social Services Directors working for Brookdale or Emeritus Corporation in California.
