These loan officers worked more than forty hours per week, and we believe that MetLife Home Loans did not pay them correctly.

On January 17, 2012 a collective action lawsuit was filed in the Federal District Court of Minnesota to recover overtime wages for loan officers employed by MetLife Home Loans, a division of MetLife Bank, N.A. According to the complaint, MetLife misclassified its loan officers across the country as exempt from overtime pay. The complaint further alleges that MetLife pays its loan officers on a commission basis, and does not compensate them when they work overtime hours over 40 per week.
