Bank of America Workers Sue for Overtime

Bank of America Corp workers have filed a lawsuit claiming the company failed to pay overtime and other wages. The suit seeks nationwide class-action status on behalf of employees at Bank of America retail branches and call centers over the past three years.

The lawsuit, which was filed June 4, 2010, alleges the bank violated overtime laws in California, Florida, Washington, Kansas and Texas.

More than 180,000 workers could be involved, and hundreds of millions of dollars could be at stake for one of the nation's largest employers. The complaint claims Bank of America required its hourly employees, including current and former bank tellers, to work during unpaid breaks, failed to provide meal and rest breaks, and failed to timely pay terminated employees for earned wages and accrued vacation time. It also alleges the company did not pay overtime when employees worked more than 40 hours in a week.

As of March 31, Bank of America employed 283,914 people worldwide, and operated 5,939 U.S. branches. The case is: Bank of America Wage and Hour Employment Practices Litigation, U.S. District Court, District of Kansas, No. 10-md-2138.
