This is a pending unfair employment practices class action lawsuit against Bank of America.
Bank of America is a large retail bank with branches and offices located across the country. This class action lawsuit alleges that Bank of America failed to properly pay overtime wages to bank tellers, personal bankers and other categories of bank employees throughout the country. The class action is based on reports from numerous former employees that describe a bank that required its employees work over 40 hours a week without overtime pay.
To date the former employees have alleged:
1. Bank of America did not properly allow bank tellers and bankers to record hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week.
2. Bank of America erases or modifies recorded hours that exceed 40 hours per week.
3. Bank of America officials allegedly provide “comp time” instead of paying overtime wages.
The suit contends those actions violate the Fair Labor Standards Act, which requires hourly employees to be paid one and a half times their normal hourly rate for any overtime.
The class action complaint alleges Bank of America practice and policy is to willfully fail and refuse to properly pay overtime compensation. It alleges branch employees are often required to work before and after scheduled shifts and to work through scheduled lunch breaks without being paid for the extra work. The class action lawsuit alleges that Bank of America promotes a “white-collar culture” that treats hourly employees like salaried workers by asking them to work extra without logging the extra time.
