Sixteen GEICO Adjusters (called the “Plaintiffs”) who worked in multiple states sued GEICO claiming that GEICO violated the FLSA by not paying Adjusters for all hours worked.
The Plaintiffs in this lawsuit allege, among other things, that GEICO’s current and former Adjusters:
1) failed to receive payment for all hours worked including overtime hours while, working before and after their scheduled shifts, including completing and submitting paperwork and claims, following up on customer calls, and speaking with auto body shops about damages vehicles and repairs;
2) worked off-the-clock during unpaid meal breaks;
3) not being allowed to record all time worked; and/or
4) worked off-the-clock to meet GEICO’s productive requirements and quotas within the allotted 7.75-hour workdays.
Plaintiffs seek to recover payment for all hours worked, including payment for unpaid overtime and minimum wage violations, interest thereon, and liquidated damages, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and litigation costs on behalf of themselves and all similarly situated Adjusters.
GEICO denies all of Plaintiffs’ allegations in this lawsuit.
