Insurance Claims Adjusters Class Action Settlement
PARRIS recovered $135 million for claims adjusters on a class action basis against one of the largest insurance companies in the United States.
The adjusters argued that they were misclassified as salaried workers, and that they should not have been paid on a salaried basis because the work tasks that they were performing were not tasks typically considered to be managerial duties under the law.
In paying the claims adjusters on a salaried basis, the insurance company failed to pay the claims adjusters overtime, and also failed to provide them with meal and rest breaks. PARRIS recovered wages and penalties for these employees in the amount of a $135,000,000 settlement.
PARRIS has been protecting employee rights for over 35 years, fighting large companies such as this insurer. In similar cases, PARRIS obtained a $33 million settlement for insurance adjusters at a personal insurance company and a $120 million settlement for employees at a property line and casualty insurance company.
