Field Case Managers Deserve Overtime Pay – Los Angeles Wage & Hour Claims Attorneys Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik

by Norman B. Blumenthal on March 21, 2013

Overtime“Field Case Managers are routinely misclassified by employers to avoid paying them overtime pay,” said Norman Blumenthal, founding partner of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik.  “This is wrong.  It hurts the workers and ultimately hurts the economy.”

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 workweek, or the first eight hours of a seventh consecutive workday.

On behalf of Field Case Managers, Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik has filed lawsuits against employers such as Coventry Health Care, Inc. and Holdings Inc d/b/a Genex Services, Inc.  In these cases, the filed complaints allege that Field Case Managers were classified as administrative personnel exempt from California law and FLSA overtime pay, and as a result failed to provide employees with overtime pay, meal and rest breaks, and accurate wage statements as required by California law.

The court has also 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.”
