Docket No: 1:24-cv-21733-KMW

Counsel: Justin Swidler, Robert Soloff (of Robert D. Soloff, P.A. in Plantation, Florida), Marc Silverman (of Frank Weinberg & Black, P.L. in Plantation, Florida)


 

On May 3, 2024, Bradley King, David Hager, and Sharon Peacock, former Mortgage Sales Employees (MSEs) at City National Bank of Florida, filed a putative class and collective action lawsuit alleging that City National Bank violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Florida Minimum Wage Act (FLMWA). The Plaintiffs allege that the bank failed to pay minimum wages and overtime compensation due under the law.

Specifically, the Plaintiffs allege that City National Bank misclassified them and other MSEs as exempt employees, resulting in unpaid overtime for hours worked over 40 per week. The Plaintiffs claim they were instructed to block report their time as 8 hours per day, Monday through Friday, regardless of actual hours worked. The Plaintiffs seek to recover unpaid wages, liquidated damages, and attorneys’ fees.
