Workers who work as Field Case Managers Generally are Misclassified as Exempt Workers when they Deserve Overtime Pay – Los Angeles Wage & Hour Claims Attorneys Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik

by Norman B. Blumenthal on April 18, 2013

nursesThe labor law firm of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik has filed lawsuits against employers such as Coventry Health Care, Inc. and Holdings Inc d/b/a Genex Services, Inc. for misclassifying Field Case Managers as exempt from overtime pay.  In the various complaints, Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik alleges that Field Case Managers were classified as administrative personnel exempt from California law and Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime pay.  The result – these companies did not pay workers overtime pay, nor provide the workers with meal and rest breaks, nor provide accurate wage statements as required by California law.

“Routinely one sees companies such as these misclassifying Field Case Managers to avoid paying them overtime pay,” said Norman Blumenthal, founding partner of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik.  “When this occurs, everyone is hurt.  The worker, the community, and the economy.  It is a domino effect.”

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.

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.”
