Sedgwick Class Action Lawsuit
Lytle & Barszcz Sues Sedgwick for Failing to Pay Overtime to Salaried Disability Representatives
What are the Sedgwick class actions?
Lytle & Barszcz successfully obtained $5.6 million in financial recoveries for two hundred salaried Sedgwick employees processing disability claims in March of 2021. The case was Easterwood et al. v. Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc. before the Federal Court in Orlando, Florida.
Currently pending is the case of Gibbs v. Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc. This case is in the Western District of Tennessee and involves almost two hundred Disability Representatives who work or worked for Sedgwick. The employees work, or worked for Sedgwick, processing disability claims, and were classified as exempt and paid a salary.
“It is humbling to have such a large group of people come together and place their trust in you to take on a corporation,” says Mary Lytle, Managing Partner of Lytle & Barszcz. “We are delighted with the outcome in our prior cases and hope to help even more people who are entitled to unpaid overtime.”
If you are a salaried employee working overtime, you must act quickly to preserve your claims.
Under both federal and state laws, you may only seek damages for unpaid overtime for a specific period of time. This means that every day that passes you may be limiting the amount of unpaid overtime you may pursue.
