OvertimeBlumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik is targeting any employer who misclassifies Field Case Managers.  “This happens all the time.  Employers misclassify Field Case Managers as exempt to avoid paying them overtime pay,” said Norman Blumenthal, founding partner of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik.  “Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik will always zealously fight to get misclassified employees their just and fair overtime pay!”

Under California law and the Federal Standards Labor Act (FLSA), all non-exempt employees are entitled to be paid overtime wages at one and a half times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of eight hours in a workday, forty hours in a week.  Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik has filed lawsuits on behalf of field case managers against employers such as Coventry Health Care, Inc. and Holdings Inc d/b/a Genex Services, Inc. who have misclassified Field Case Managers as administrative personnel exempt from California law and FLSA overtime pay.  The court has tentatively certified the following class in the Coventry case: “All those individuals employed by [Coventry Health] in California who worked as a Field Case Manager at any time from April 7, 2007 to May 1, 2012.”

In 2010, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Louisiana upheld a $262 million class action settlement against First Health Group Corp. Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Coventry Health Care Inc, for not providing lower medical reimbursements to injured workers.
