- Overtime Recovery for HMO Marketing Representatives

On Friday, March 30, 2012, Amerigroup Corporation agreed to pay $4.45 million dollars to settle a class action brought by its New York Marketing Representatives for unpaid overtime wages. The marketing representatives for the HMO filed a lawsuit challenging Amerigroup's position that they were not eligible to receive overtime pay if they worked more than 40 hours within a week. Amerigroup paid its marketing representatives a salary, but no overtime when they worked more than 40 hours per week. Each class member will receive an average of $5,000 as part of the settlement.
Morgan & Morgan, one of the law firms that represented the class, continues to investigate claims of other marketing representatives who were denied overtime. Morgan & Morgan's national employment department has filed a similar class action suit against another HMO, Wellcare, in New York City.

Morgan & Morgan's overtime attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of HMO sales and marketing representatives who are not receiving the overtime wages they are owed.
