7th Circuit Affirms Class Certification in Overtime Case
On Monday, the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit affirmed the Order certifying a class in Mariseli Gomez Bell v. PNC Bank. Wexler Wallace, along with our co-counsel, represents the Plaintiff, a former employee at PNC Bank who is seeking compensation under Illinois law and federal law for unpaid overtime hours. We also represent the certified class, which includes PNC Bank’s non-exempt employees at certain branches in Illinois. The Plaintiff alleges PNC Bank had an unofficial policy or practice to deny proper overtime compensation and seeks an award for damages in the form of unpaid overtime.
