Sanford Heisler, LLP has filed a $50 million amended complaint in the US District Court on behalf of claims specialists Debra Julian and Stephanie McKinney, against MetLife, Inc., the nation’s largest insurance company, and two of its subsidiaries, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company and MetLife Insurance Company USA. Julian and McKinney both worked for the insurer on long term disability insurance claims as Claim Specialists (“LTD Claim Specialists”). Both allege that they and other LTD Claim Specialists regularly worked between 45 and 60 hours per week, yet haven’t received overtime compensation since November of 2013 when MetLife, according to the complaint, misclassified them as “exempt,” salaried employees.
