Current Class Action:

On September 29, 2016, Rukin Hyland filed a class and collective action lawsuit in the Northern District of California against Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. on behalf of a proposed class of current and former Payroll Sales Representatives. The complaint alleges that Wells Fargo misclassified Payroll Sales Representatives as exempt employees in violation of California and federal law. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Wells Fargo’s emphasis on cross-selling and its demanding and unreasonable sales goals caused Payroll Sales Representatives to work significant amounts of overtime and work through their meal and rest breaks, but that Wells Fargo did not compensate its Payroll Sales Representatives for any of the overtime they worked or for their missed breaks. As a result, Plaintiffs allege that Wells Fargo is liable for damages for unpaid wages, meal and rest break penalties, unfair and unlawful competition, and other related penalties.
