Bank of America employees have filed a class action lawsuit claiming the bank failed to pay them overtime and other wages. More than a dozen lawsuits were combined into the class action lawsuit, which could affect as many as 180,000 Bank of America employees if it’s approved.
The class action lawsuit alleges Bank of America requires employees to work more than eight hours a day or 40 hours a week, yet fails to pay them for both overtime and for all straight time worked, according to a news report. Another news report says the employees claim they were told not to record their overtime and even had their recorded hours modified by Bank of America to eliminate any incurred overtime. The lawsuit also accuses Bank of America of requiring employees to work during unpaid breaks, failing to provide meal and rest breaks, and failing to pay terminated employees for earned wages and accrued vacation time in a timely manner.
The class action lawsuit is seeking back pay and other damages for class members in addition to attorney fees, and could be worth more than $100 million.
UPDATE: Bank of America has reached a $73 million class action settlement to resolve these allegations. See how to file a claim for the Bank of America wage and hour class action settlement now.
