Scotiabank Agrees to Settle in Overtime Suit

Scotiabank has agreed to consider overtime claims from thousands of its front-line sales employees for work done as much as 13 years ago under a class action settlement that has now received court approval. The claim period will depend on the province or territory where the work was performed. The deadline for submitting a claim is October 15, 2014. Cindy Fulawka, a personal banking representative at Scotiabank, filed the lawsuit against the bank in December 2007 seeking to represent personal or senior bankers, financial advisers and small business account managers. Scotiabank said last month, after the settlement was negotiated, that the amount of money was 'not financially material' to the bank. The bank has also agreed to pay $10.45 million to the law firms acting for the plaintiffs.

Scotiabank and Class Counsel Reach Agreement to Settle Overtime Class Action

Scotiabank and the representative plaintiff Cindy Fulawka have reached an agreement to settle the Fulawka v. The Bank of Nova Scotia Overtime Class Action. A hearing for approval of the proposed settlement will take place on August 12. The class action was commenced against the Bank in December 2007 on behalf of certain full-time retail branch bank employees in Canada who held the positions of Personal Banking Officer, Senior Personal Banking Officer, Financial Advisor or Account Manager Small Business. Scotiabank is participating in the settlement proposal to reinforce its long standing commitment to pay employees for their overtime work or provide time in lieu. The Bank is confident that its employee policies, including on overtime, have been applied fairly and consistently. The basis of the settlement, which is subject to approval on August 12, is a claims process. If the settlement is approved, the Bank will encourage and invite all eligible class members to make claims for any overtime that was worked but not previously compensated during the claim period identified in the Class Action.
