Ex-Employee Accuses Anthem Of Not Paying Overtime Wages Properly
An ex-worker has filed a class action lawsuit against Anthem over alleged improper payments of overtime work.
Deon Baker v. The Anthem Companies, Inc.
Deon Baker, formerly employed with Anthem, filed the Anthem Overtime Wages Class Action Lawsuit under a Georgia federal court’s jurisdiction.
In the complaint, Baker contends that Anthem does not garnish the proper compensation to its employees. It is said that personnel are not given overtime pay and are forced to perform 60-hour workweek schedules with no added pay.
Having worked for Anthem between the years 2015 and 2020, Baker claims that she mostly worked for more than 40 hours in a given workweek without being properly compensated for her effort and time.
The plaintiff tried raising the concern to their immediate supervisor yet did not receive any remedy to the said problem. It is believed that the manager stated that Anthem would not hire new workers, and the workloads given to Baker and others cannot be changed.
The Anthem Overtime Wages Class Action Lawsuit is looking to form and represent a Class group consisting of Anthem company personnel located in Georgia with the following designations: Nurse Reviewer, Nurse Reviewer Associate, Utilization Review Nurses, and more, and were not provided overtime pay for rendering their services outside the 40-hour workweek.
Baker is accusing Anthem of not following the Fair Labors Standards Act with its infractions towards its employees.
