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.

  • Case No. BCD-CV-14-061
  • Pending in the Business and Consumer Court for Cumberland County, Maine

In March 2014, plaintiffs Alec and Emma Sabina filed this putative class action lawsuit alleging JPMorgan Chase violated the law by not sending them and other Class members their “original” recorded mortgage release within 30 days after receiving it back from the Cumberland County Recorder of Deeds.

Specifically the lawsuit contends that Chase violated Section 551 which states that “within 30 days after receiving the recorded release of the mortgage from the registry of deeds, the mortgagee shall send the release by first class mail to the mortgagor’s address as listed in the mortgage agreement or to an address specified in writing by the mortgagor for this purpose.”

The law also states that if a lien release is not sent by first class mail to the mortgagor’s address within 30 days after receiving the recorded release, the a mortgagee can be held liable for damages of $500, court costs and attorney’s fees in any successful action.

Chase denies all allegations of liability, wrongdoing, and damages but agreed to settle the case on a class-wide basis to avoid continued litigation.
