Savitskie v. Zenta Mortgage Services, LLC
Berger Montague represented the Plaintiff, Joseph Savitskie, in a collective action lawsuit filed on March 14, 2011 on behalf of current or former Zenta mortgage underwriters. The lawsuit alleged that Zenta improperly misclassified its mortgage underwriters as exempt from the overtime requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). The lawsuit claimed that Zenta violated the FLSA by failing to pay its mortgage underwriters at time and a half their regular rate of pay for any overtime hours worked (over 40 hours per week).
The FLSA claim for unpaid wages and overtime potentially covers all mortgage underwriters who worked for Zenta at any time from March 14, 2008 to the present. If you decide to participate, it is important that you send in an opt-in consent form as soon as possible. The statute of limitations (the time period in which you have to bring your claim) continues to run in the FLSA portion of the case until your completed opt-in consent form is filed with the Court.
