About the case

Berger Montague is investigating Wells Fargo for a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of current and former employees who claim they were not paid overtime compensation or not paid for all hours worked.

Since September 2016, Wells Fargo has been the target of government investigations into an alleged fraudulent scheme to open millions of unauthorized checking and credit accounts on behalf of existing customers in order to enhance its sales figures.

Current and former Wells Fargo employees, including private bankers, account executives, bank tellers, branch managers, and customer service representatives have alleged that they were forced to open fake accounts in order to meet unrealistic and oppressive sales quotas. These same employees allege that they were also forced to work off-the-clock in order to meet the sales targets set by Wells Fargo’s senior management, as it was impossible to achieve such sales in a forty (40) hour workweek.

The federal government has also undertaken a related inquiry into whether Wells Fargo skirted overtime laws by failing to pay overtime to private bankers, account executives, bank tellers, branch managers, and customer service representatives who stayed late, worked from home, or came in on weekends to meet their sales quotas, or by misclassifying salaried bank associates as overtime-exempt to avoid paying the overtime guaranteed to them by the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”).

Under the FLSA, non-exempt employees are entitled to one and a half (1 ½) times their regular hourly pay rate for every hour worked above forty (40) hours during the workweek. 29 U.S.C. § 207.
