M&T Bank, Former Employees Reach $2.3 Million Settlement of Overtime Class Action

Posted on behalf of Peter T. Nicholl in Unpaid Overtime Sep 04, 2019

reviewing documents and typingOn November 16, 2018, our firm reached a $2,300,000 settlement on behalf of former M&T Bank employees in their class action lawsuit against the company.

In the suit, nine former employees alleged they were misclassified as exempt from overtime and illegally denied overtime pay, even though they worked up to 60 hours per week. They said the Buffalo, N.Y.-based company recruited them in 2013 to work as enhanced due diligence investigators making $83,000 per year in salary.

The employees were not assigned the work they agreed to and instead, they performed clerical tasks and data entry. The lawsuit alleged that this was a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and Maryland employment law.

Our firm pursued compensation for back pay, liquidated damages, interest, and attorneys’ fees. The parties involved calculated an award for each class member based on eligible work weeks.
