Opening a bank and securing the premises is work. If you aren’t paid to perform such tasks, M&T Bank may be violating the law. Call us today to determine your rights.
Our firm is committed to stopping wage theft at banks. For years, we have investigated banks, and filed lawsuits on behalf of thousands of bank employees who have been denied wages owed under the law.
There is a widespread practice in the banking industry to require tellers and other branch employees to perform bank opening procedures before clocking in. Although variation exists between banks, many banks fail to pay employees for (1) checking the exterior of the bank for signs of criminal activity; (2) waiting in the parking lot for a second employee to arrive; (3) searching the inside of the bank or watching the outside of the bank when another employee performs such search; as well as other tasks. We have reason to believe M&T Bank may be requiring its employees to perform these tasks before clocking in and without pay.
If you have performed such tasks without being paid for such time within the last 3 years at M&T Bank, you may be owed wages. Additionally, under the law, you may be entitled to additional money beyond your lost wages. Call us today or complete the form below and we will reach out to you promptly to provide you a free and confidential consultation.
If you decide during the consultation you would like to move forward, there are no upfront costs or fees. Our firm accepts these types of cases on a fully contingent basis and only will seek to recover fees and costs out a recovery. If there is no recovery or judgment in your favor, Swartz Swidler, LLC will not seek any fee or cost from you.
