GEICO Security Investigators On the Trail of Overtime Relief – Los Angeles Wage & Hour Claims Attorneys Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik

by Norman B. Blumenthal on January 8, 2013

  Former and current GEICO security investigators are going to trial to collect unpaid overtime wages from one of the largest insurance companies in the world.

GEICO has always treated their security investigators as administrative personnel, exempt from overtime pay as decreed by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).  In 2010, however, GEICO’s security investigators sued the company to recover overtime pay.  According to the security investigators, most of the work they performed was not administrative.  A Maryland court agreed.  Further, the court certified the security investigators as a class under Rule 23.

Under the FLSA, non-exempt workers are entitled to overtime pay for hours worked in excess of eight hours a day, or forty hours a week.  Workers who perform tasks that are primarily administrative in nature are exempt from FLSA requirements.
