BofA Sued for Violating Fair Labor Standards

In addition to a suit alleging bias, Bank of America is being sued for violating fair labor standards for not paying overtime to paralegals. From the Charlotte Observer:

Bank of America Corp. was sued by a former paralegal over claims the bank failed to pay overtime to employees who worked through meal breaks and outside of normal business hours.

The bank's failure to compensate employees for all hours worked violates federal fair labor standards and Delaware laws, according to the lawsuit filed Tuesday by William Wersinger in Wilmington, Del., federal court.

"The bank has not fully investigated the allegations in the complaint," bank spokeswoman Shirley Norton said. "The bank has well-established policies and procedures on associate pay that are designed to ensure associates are paid in accordance with federal and state laws."
