Employee Wage Lawyer and Overtime Lawyer - Liberty Mutual Insurance Company Settlement on Behalf of Auto Damage Appraisers

Shapiro Haber & Urmy LLP represented auto damage appraisers in two collective actions under the federal overtime law, the Fair Labor Standards Act, seeking to recover unpaid overtime compensation. One of the cases also included a separate class action claim under the Massachusetts overtime law. The employer contended that the employees were not subject to the overtime laws because the employees were exempt administrative employees. The cases settled for $6.4 million, for approximately 149 class members. Thomas V. Urmy Jr. primarily handled the case for Shapiro Haber & Urmy LLP.
