Hartford unpaid overtime lawsuit

Following on the heels of a $3.67 Million Dollar class action settlement approved by the Court, Lytle & Barszcz has two other current class action suits against the Hartford Fire Insurance Company for unpaid overtime. Lytle & Barszcz secured the previous $3.67 Million Dollar settlement on behalf of 47 plaintiffs following Hartford’s misclassification of their status as “exempt” from overtime pay. Members of the class obtained individual awards ranging from $6,698.96 to $245,658.47.

One of the new lawsuits is on behalf of Hartford Analysts who reside or resided in New York at the time they worked for Hartford. The New York case, Andreas-Moses et al. v. Hartford Fire Insurance Company, alleges that the Plaintiffs worked as “Analysts” who processed disability claims and were misclassified as “exempt” from overtime pay. Specifically, these Plaintiffs who were Analysts processing disability claims between November 2010 and the present were not paid overtime for work performed in excess of forty (40) hours in a workweek.

“Experience is the best teacher,” says Mary Lytle, Managing Partner of Lytle & Barszcz, “and we are delighted to bring a wealth of experience from our prior cases against Hartford for unpaid overtime to our New York clients. Having already obtained substantial recoveries for our former clients, we are in the best position to vigorously represent our new clients who have also been misclassified and not paid overtime.”

Even if your employer paid you overtime after the fact, or had you sign a release or severance agreement, you may still be entitled to overtime and potentially double that amount.

The New York case is open for new people to join. Please contact us to see if you are owed overtime. 1-855-LYTLELAW or (407) 622-6544, or by email at lb@lblaw.attorney.
