Gordon v. Wells Fargo

Big Wage and Hour Class Action Complaint Filed Against Wells Fargo

The California employment law lawyers of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed this class action case against Wells Fargo on January 14, 2010 alleging that the bank misclassified Business Sales Consultants as exempt from overtime compensation. The complaint alleges that the bank employees do not qualify for the inside sales exemption because half of their total earning do not come from commissions. California overtime laws are strict and the employer has the burden of proving that the employees meet one of the exemption tests.
