Case Summary:

American Income Life Insurance Company is choosing to settle a class action alleging the company violated the California Labor Code and the state’s Industrial Welfare Commission Wages Orders, among other things, by failing to pay for all hours worked, including for time spent training. The complaint also claimed the company did not provide overtime pay for overtime hours worked, meal and rest breaks, waiting time penalties, and accurate wage statements, and did not reimburse work-related expenses. There was an earlier version of this settlement, but the judge did not approve the allocation of payments it set forth.
