Premera Blue Cross Reaches $1.45M Settlement in Overtime Class Action


This is a settlement for the Employment lawsuit.

Seattle, WA: Preliminary approval has been granted for a $1.45 million settlement in a class action against Premera Blue Cross. The suit alleged that the company failed to pay overtime to tech workers.

The class-action lawsuit was filed in 2010 and alleged that the Mountlake Terrace-based health insurance company and its subsidiaries had misclassified about 133 tech support workers as exempt from overtime pay.

Judge Thomas Zilly preliminarily approved the settlement last month and is scheduled to decide on a final settlement approval in June.
