Bank Tellers & Personal Bankers
Employees who work in banks are often denied overtime pay. Banks often have their tellers perform pre-shift and post-shift tasks off the clock. This includes tellers have to open branches before their shifts and time spent balancing drawers and closing branches at the end of shifts. This is often done “off the clock” and without pay. All of these minutes each day add up quickly and can lead to hundreds if not thousands of dollars of unpaid overtime. Also, bank employees who work as personal bankers are often denied overtime pay. Some banks misclassify personal bankers as being exempt from overtime and pay them a set salary + commissions or bonuses. Persons performing these types of service/sales duties are typically required to be paid overtime. Other employers may pay these personal bankers by the hour with overtime pay, but fail to include their commissions or bonuses when calculating overtime pay. Both of these schemes by employers can deny call center employees thousands of dollars in overtime pay.
