San Francisco, CA: A call center unpaid wages class action lawsuit has been filed by employees at an Obamacare call center in Idaho, alleging the contractor, Maximus Inc, miscategorised empoyees as exempt for overtime, and is in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
Specifically, the putative wage and hour class action lawsuit alleges that most employees worked between 50 and 60 hours a week beginning in the summer of 2013, without receiving compensation for the overtime, and that they were made to clock off before they had actually finished their shifts. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges the employees were unable to take mandatory breaks including lunch.
The class action contains two putative sub classes, one consisting of first level supervisors, and the second of call center employee trainers at the Boise, Idaho branch.
The unpaid overtime class action lawsuit is Yvette Norton, et al. v. Maximus Inc., Case No. 14-cv-00030, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Ohio.
