ABBEY SPANIER, LLP IS INVESTIGATING POTENTIAL WAGE AND HOUR VIOLATIONS BY ALLSTATE CORP.
Abbey Spanier is currently investigating Allstate for improperly classifying its Exclusive Agents as independent contractors in violation of federal and state wage and hour laws. Under the law, employees are entitled to receive overtime pay as well as certain other benefits. In order to avoid paying overtime and benefits, Allstate allegedly treats its Exclusive Agents as independent contractors instead of employees, despite the fact that Allstate exercises discretion and control over the Exclusive Agents and the way in which they perform their job responsibilities. Exclusive Agents allegedly operate Allstate locations under the direct control of Allstate through its enforcement of specific company-imposed guidelines and procedures.
Abbey Spanier has been representing employees in class actions and collective actions in federal and state courts throughout the United States for over a decade.
