The Complaint alleges AIS misclassified its National Nurse Reviewers, PHAD Nurses, and others in similar positions, as exempt from overtime pay.
MINNEAPOLIS, MN, March 30, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — On March 25, 2020, a former National Nurse Reviewer filed a lawsuit against Auto Injury Solutions, Inc. (“AIS”) alleging violations of federal overtime laws. The named plaintiff brought the case individually, on behalf of all others similarly situated nationwide, as salaried employees.
The Complaint, filed as a collective action, alleges that AIS, which provides first and third-party casualty claims to auto insurance companies, intentionally misclassified its National Nurse Reviewers, PHAD Nurses, and others in similar positions, as exempt from overtime pay for the hours they worked over 40 per week, in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The workers seek unpaid overtime compensation and double damages.
Reena Desai, a partner with Nichols Kaster, PLLP representing the named plaintiff explained, “Now more than ever, it is important to hold companies accountable for unpaid wages. We believe that our client and others in a similar position who spend their time completing medical necessity reviews are misclassified as exempt and deserve to be properly paid.”
Plaintiff is represented by Reena I. Desai from Nichols Kaster, PLLP, which has offices in Minneapolis, Minnesota and San Francisco, California, and M. Nieves Bolaños at Potter Bolaños LLC in Chicago serving as local counsel. The case is entitled, Quinn v. Auto Injury Solutions, Inc., No. 1:20-cv-01966 (Northern District of Illinois).
