SAN FRANCISCO – An employee of a branch of a San Francisco-based bank in Wyoming claims she was not compensated properly for all hours worked and has filed a class action.
Satenik Dolunts Otto filed a complaint on behalf of others similarly situated on March 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Bank of the West alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was hired as a teller in March 2016 and then terminated for her complaints about regularly working off-the-clock without pay. The plaintiff holds Bank of the West responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay overtime wages to the plaintiff at the legal rate.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunction against the defendant, all damages, unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Christopher Wimmer, Peter Roldan and Jason Fisher of Emergent LLP in San Francisco.
