This is a lawsuit brought under New York Labor Law and asserts that The Hartford should have paid overtime wages for members of the Class and should have provided accurate wage statements. The Named Plaintiffs in this lawsuit are eight present and former Hartford employees, who allege that they were wrongly classified and not paid overtime compensation for their work at Hartford. The Class seeks unpaid overtime pay, liquidated damages, damages for failure to provide accurate wage statements and attorneys’ fees and costs. The Hartford denies that it owes the plaintiffs any overtime pay, and contends that plaintiffs’ duties made them exempt from overtime pay. No money or benefits are available now because the trial has not occurred, and the two sides have not settled the case. There is no guarantee that money or benefits will ever be obtained. If they are, you will be notified of the procedure to prove the amount of your own monetary damages.
The Court has allowed the lawsuit to be a class action for liability only, for the following group ("Class Members"):
ALL EMPLOYEES OF DEFENDANT WHO, FROM NOVEMBER 12, 2012 THROUGH THE PRESENT, WORK AND/OR WORKED FOR DEFENDANT IN NEW YORK AS LTD ANALYSTS, WERE CLASSIFIED AS EXEMPT FROM OVERTIME UNDER THE NEW YORK LABOR LAW, WERE PAID A SALARY, WORKED MORE THAN FORTY (40) HOURS IN A SINGLE WORK WEEK, AND WERE NOT PAID OVERTIME AT A RATE OF ONE AND ONE-HALF TIMES THEIR REGULAR RATE OF PAY FOR ANY AND ALL HOURS WORKED IN EXCESS OF FORTY (40) HOURS IN A SINGLE WORK WEEK, AND WHO DID NOT RECEIVE ACCURATE WAGE STATEMENTS.
