On November 2, 2011, Berger & Montague filed a class action
complaint in Illinois state court alleging the Fifth Third Bancorp
failed to compensate its loan officers for their overtime.
The complaint alleges violations of the Illinois Minimum Wage Law
("IMWL") and the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act ("IWPCA")
along with common law causes of action.
About the case:
In January 2011, Fifth Third reclassified its loan officers in
recognition of the fact that they were not properly classified as
exempt from state and federal overtime requirements. Even
after this reclassification, Fifth Third's supervisors instructed
loan officers not to report overtime hours on their timesheets in
an effort to evade these wage and hour laws.
