Community Bank Relationship Manager Overtime Settlement Notes

  • Saeed Hesami v. Community Bank
  • Case No. BC640235
  • Pending in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, Central Civil West,

Plaintiff Saeed Hesami brought this putative wage and hour class action lawsuit against Community Bank alleging the bank violated California labor laws by misclassifying and failing to pay its Relationship Managers properly.

Specifically, Hesami alleges Community Bank failed to pay overtime and regularly violated California wage and hour laws by not providing applicable meal and rest periods, unreimbursed business expenses, as well as wage statement violations.

Community Bank denies the allegations and any wrongdoing and maintains that Class Members were properly classified and treated in compliance with California wage and hour laws. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Community Bank Relationship Manager Overtime Settlement website.

Class members who wish to exclude themselves or object to the Community Bank Relationship Manager Overtime settlement or dispute the number of weeks you worked must do so by November 26, 2018. Class members who wish to participate in the settlement do not need to do anything.
