Amerigroup – Unpaid Overtime Wages
Kessler Matura P.C. , together with the law firm of Outten & Golden, LLP, has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of current and former employees of Amerigroup of New York, LLC (“Amerigroup”). Amerigroup offers eligible individuals’ government based health insurance programs, such as Medicaid. Amerigroup employs Marketing Representatives, to enroll eligible New Yorkers for free or low-cost government-subsidized health insurance at locations throughout New York, including at doctors’ offices, hospitals, and pharmacies. We allege that Amerigroup requires its Marketing Representatives to meet daunting productivity requirements each workweek, forcing them to work in excess of 40 hours per workweek in order to avoid disciplinary action. While working greater than 40 hours per workweek, we allege that Amerigroup refused to permit Marketing Representatives to log their time, and required those Marketing Representatives to work off-the-clock, in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New York Labor Law.
