Employees Sue Bank of America for Unpaid Overtime and Wages

By Sarah Pierce

 

Bank of America employees have filed a class action lawsuit claiming the bank failed to pay them overtime and other wages. More than a dozen lawsuits were combined into the class action lawsuit, which could affect as many as 180,000 Bank of America employees if it’s approved.

 

The class action lawsuit alleges Bank of America requires employees to work more than eight hours a day or 40 hours a week, yet fails to pay them for both overtime and for all straight time worked, according to a news report. Another news report says the employees claim they were told not to record their overtime and even had their recorded hours modified by Bank of America to eliminate any incurred overtime. The lawsuit also accuses Bank of America of requiring employees to work during unpaid breaks, failing to provide meal and rest breaks, and failing to pay terminated employees for earned wages and accrued vacation time in a timely manner.

 

The class action lawsuit is seeking back pay and other damages for class members in addition to attorney fees, and could be worth more than $100 million.

    I worked for BOA for 14 years and many times would not get a lunch. Went to events to promote checking accounts, worked many evenings and then was told to go back to the bank to update new accounts in the computer so I could call customers back with account numbers. One time at the bank alone until 11.00 pm. Never got paid for the time. Worked events and was told I would get time off for the hours but not get paid overtime.
    Christmas eve bank closed at 1:00 and I was told I needed to work until 3:00.
    I had a manager who had been with the bank for only two years and had managed to fire 18 people within that amount of time. I called our district manager, Colleen Sharf and we met for breakfast and I explained to her the bullying that the employees were dealing with regarding this manager. I was told to just do as my boss said.
    I would come to work at 6:30 and stay until 6 at night to catch up on all that this manager told me to do. Was never paid any overtime.

    This company did exactly what is claimed here and then shuffled many of those employees off to work for HP in such a fashion as to not pay severance pay. Want to know why the economy stinks? Because big, connected businesses like this that get special treatment by the government will never have to compete like a small business. They’ll just lie about profits (they make money hand over fist on credit cards) and then claim to be hurt by the mortgage market. It’s all a big scam. I was getting a loan with countrywide, then bank of amer took it over and lost it and then strung it out until I was broke and still didn’t finance it.
