JPMorgan Chase Assistant Branch Manager Overtime Settlement Notes
- Erami, et al. v. JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.
- Case No.2:15-cv-07728-PSG-PLA
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California
Plaintiff Mitra Erami brought this putative class action lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase alleging the bank violated California labor laws by failing to pay its Assistant Branch Managers overtime wages and failing to provide proper meal and rest breaks. Two other similar class actions were also filed.
Specifically, the Erami case alleges Chase misclassified certain Assistant Branch Managers as exempt, thereby denying them overtime pay, meal and rest breaks. Additionally, the Chase overtime lawsuit says the bank failed to pay ABMs all wages due at time of termination.
In May 2017, the three cases reached an agreement with Chase to settle all cases for $25 million, with the Erami case receiving $8.33 of that amount.
Chase denies the allegations. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the JPMorgan Chase Assistant Branch Manager Overtime Settlement website.
