Wells Fargo Bank Settles Overtime Wages Lawsuits

Wells Fargo Bank agreed to pay $15 million in back overtime wages to nearly 4,500 current and former home mortgage consultants, including 50 to 100 in Houston, where the case was filed and eventually settled in federal court. The loan officers at Wells Fargo and its predecessor, Wachovia Corp., worked more than 50 hours a week taking applications for home loans but were incorrectly classified by the bank as exempt from overtime. The average recovery is about $3,400 per person. The seven ex-employees who came forward initially in 2011 will receive $15,000 to $20,000 each, according to the settlement agreement. Estimated the average annual salary for the home mortgage consultants was between $45,000 and $50,000. The settlement also includes $11.5 million in legal fees.
